The International Online Toaster Museum

maybaum

Ladies and gentlemen, seek I bring you the International Online Toaster Museum.  One of mankind’s greatest achievements.  Anyone who knows me, knows that I love a toasters.  I really enjoy old toasters.  I was super excited to see this on Boing Boing Gadgets today.  I’ve actually been seeing a bit of news lately about toasters.  I have a few new posts to add to the site. 

I know I’ve been a bit of a slacker lately.  I’ve been focusing most of my attention on my other blog futile.com.  Oh and I also blame twitter.  I’ve been obsessed with Twitter for some time now and I think it’s making me blog less.

Anyway, please check out the museum.  It contains a surprisingly rich amount of toaster history with many photographs of each model.  It’s an excellent site for design inspiration to boot.

Okay, I’m going to go and make some toast now.

A little history
