Of all the things an historian can archive and catalogue, not many pay attention to the sounds people heard in history.
This is a cool website that aims to catalogue the sounds of outdated technology: The Museum of Endangered Sounds website. The page has recordings of a Speak & Spell, the dial-up modem sound, Pac-Man, a pay phone, and a gameboy. A bit more modern history than I’m used to posting, but still a good trip down memory lane.
