The temporary nature of knowledge

I never realized how temporary knowledge is, until I heard the story of the mos6502’s death. The fact that we can coin a term such as Technology Archaeology for a cpu that is still in use to this day is more than a little strange. Normally we think of archaeology as rediscovering things hundreds or thousands of years old, but Technology Archaeology shows us we can forget things much quicker than that.
