Early Adopter

Rainer Prem very kindly sent me a link to the original painting, thinking that it may be useful, and indeed it was! Thanks, Rainer!

The source painting is Woman playing the Virginal by Jan Miense Molenaer (1610-1668).

Replacing the spinet with a laptop was fun, adding another downtimer ‘early adopter’ of uptime tech to the ranks. I’m pretty sure people of any century would enjoy playing Galaga, given the chance.

In case anyone is wondering, the laptop is an IBM Thinkpad 750C from 1993.
