   A better question might be "why do some people freak out when things 
are shown to have value".

   I just had this conversation yesterday on another mailing list about 
the Cyclops camera (just the camera head, no boards) that sold for about 
$2500.  "The market has spoken".

   In this case, I would posit the main reasons for the high price are 
historical importance (in multiple contexts) and rarity.

   People don't bat an eye when someone drops serious coin on an old car 
or an old piece of jewelry.  Why should technology be any different?  It 
has arguably made a far deeper impact on society than either cars or 
jewelry.  Can you offer any good reasons why its history should be any 
less sought-after or valued?
