Anything relating to computing 20 or more years ago. Rather than
pre-1993: so in 2021, people can talk about anything up to 2001.
Not just for hardware & software, but also the changing culture & public
Also anything that compared 'modern day' with the 'old-days', would also
be valid, as well as which companies were dominant and why.
I think people should also be encouraged to discuss how they got into
computers, and what training & experience they thought was relevant -
even if this breaks the '20-year rule'!
