For those of you with some extra millions to spend, check out Christie's website for an auction of the Origins of Cyberspace Library, a set of fascinating original historical documents collected by Jeremy Norman. You'll find therein letters from Charles Babbage with notes by Ada Augusta, Countess of Lovelace, as well as papers and reports from Eckert and Mauchley, Turning, Shannon and many other luminaries.
The auction will be held in New York City on February 23rd; it just so happens I'll be celebrating my 50th birthday on the 27th of February, just in case any of you feel inspired to do some gift giving :-).
