Adafruit was founded in 2005 by MIT hacker & engineer, Limor “Ladyada” Fried. Her goal was to create the best place online for learning electronics and making the best designed products for makers of all ages and skill levels. Adafruit has grown to over 100+ employees in the heart of NYC with a 50,000+ sq ft. factory. Adafruit has expanded offerings to include tools, equipment, and electronics that Limor personally selects, tests, and approves before going in to the Adafruit store. Adafruit is a 100% woman owned company.
Hackaday, serves up Fresh Hacks Every Day from around the Internet. Their playful posts are the gold standard in entertainment for engineers and engineering enthusiasts. The Hackaday team’s goal is to take back the term “Hacking” which has been soured in the public mind according to their belief.
The Hackaday team believes hacking is an art form that uses something in a way in which it was not originally intended. This highly creative activity can be highly technical, simply clever, or both. Hackers bask in the glory of building it instead of buying it, repairing it rather than trashing it, and raiding their junk bins for new projects every time they can steal a few moments away.
Windows 93 is an online emulator reminiscent of Windows and other operating systems (OS’s) of the early 1990’s era, it was created by a pair of French hackers Jankenpopp and Zombectro. Windows 93 is a web-based operating system with a lot of insider internet jokes, parodies and MEMEs etc. However that said Windows 93 also comes with an impressive array of programs, applications and multi media content that will entertain and educate.
The educational content is more historical as Windows 93 is an excellent example of how older operating systems worked and the look and feel of old applications etc. Some of the goodies awaiting users are functional emulators, MIDI players with one of the most impressive collections of MIDI music and the same can be said for the collection of ASCII art and a full version of Star wars (1977) in the form of an ASCII made move (A must watch for any Star Wars or ASCII fan) and a whole host of other treasures.
All About Circuits (AAC), since its founding in 2003, AAC has grown into one of the largest online electrical engineering communities. It is a positive, open community of engineers that enjoy sharing knowledge and ideas. The AAC community takes pride in educating electrical engineers as they grow their experience and knowledge.

Tom’s Hardware is the leading destination for tech enthusiasts of all skill levels. Whether you are building a PC, buying a laptop or learning how to create robots with your kids, they have comprehensive editorial resources and a vibrant expert community to help you on your journey.
Tom’s Hardware has its name and roots in Dr Thomas Pabst, who was one of the first people to bring technology journalism to the internet, as early as 1996. Back in these early days, the site was still called “Tom’s Hardware and Performance Guide” and its domain was sysdoc.pair.com, pair.com being a Pittsburgh-based hosting company.
One of Tom’s Hardware’s journalistic milestones was Tom’s findings regarding the Intel Pentium III 1.13 GHz processor, which forced the chip company to postpone its launch by months. Since then, Tom’s Hardware has kept up the tradition with unrivalled scrutiny of technology.
Win World, was created in 2003 to serve a singular purpose, to preserve and share old software and the knowledge necessary to use that software as the sites create (Known as “Duff”) found that it was nigh-impossible to find reliable sites from which you could find and download collections of abandonware software.
EmuOS / Emupedia, the primary purpose is to serve as a nonprofit meta-resource hub and community for those interested mainly in video game preservation and computer history which aims to digitally collect, archive and preserve games and software to make them available online and accessible by a user-friendly UI that simulates several retro operating systems for educational purposes.
EmuOS collect content from a wide variety of systems no longer in production such as abandonware, shareware, freeware games websites and open source ports of old games that work in modern web browsers, they also use new games and software developed with modern web technologies using retro-style graphics, they revive old games and software by the use of emulation software.
Circuit JS is an electronic circuit simulator, when the applet starts up you will see an animated schematic of a simple LRC circuit, which you can edit change, or create a new circuit(s), it has a built in oscilloscope.

It supports a wide variety of hardware. Protocol decoders are written in Python and can be stacked on top of each other.
My Abandonware was created in February 2009 as a revival of oldware.net. Over the years, thousands of games have been added to the site. The developers of Abandonware wanted to create the best video games museum on the web and let everyone around the world enjoy the incredible amount of great software created in the 80s and 90s.
Until now, the developers of Abandonware have focused their work on the DOS era, with some very rare titles found in the deep web, and some sent by our awesome visitors. More recent games and other platforms are available now. Enjoy!
