Wel...that's interesting. I have never heard of that before...but what would I know? I wonder if that museum might have morphed into "Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie"...

In my blog I point to another blog by Jon Titus where he speaks about the

National Museum of Technology
Plaine St. Denis (Paris)
+33-1-53-018200
www.cnam.fr/museum/index__a.html

Started in 1794 as a place where inventors could display their perfected tools and machines, the museum's "new" objects eventually became historical items. Exhibits range from photographic equipment to golf-ball printers, barometers, thermometers, clocks, and an astrolabe once owned by Lavoisier.

The web site given is no longer valid and a google search shows up the museum you have described. Perhaps It has morphed in a new guise.

Thanks for the reccomendation- a good reason to go back to Paris- as if one needed a another one.

Perhaps I will be able to add it to the next edition of my blog Touring as an Engineer.

I already went to Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie and Palais de la Découverte, but I might go again if there is some new tempory exhibition!

Thanks Frank and Junko for those recommendations.

I am glad you are visiting the Museum of Arts et Metier next week. Yes, it won't dissapoint you.

As Frank noted, Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie is also a good one. Well curated and educational.

@prabhakar, I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed the slideshow.  together. I spent a whole afternoon last Friday there, had a great time, and I enjoyed even more putting together this slideshow.

You wrote:

Two and half centuries from an adding machine to the multiplying machine - The pace looks so slow now , but those were the visionaries who brough the real industrial revolution to this world.

Compared to those original ideas , what we are doing today looks just some incremental work.

That's exactly the I way felt when I was at the museum. And I couldn't agree with you more, when you pointed out:

The real heros of that age are the mechanical engineers.

Indeed.

I know...this place is so off the radar! David, don't wait too long. You must come back to Paris!

Two obvious ones are Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie and Palais de la Découverte. And if you happen to come to Munich, Germany, be sure to visit the Deutsches Museum.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
