FridayQ: Collectable

This week’s FridayQ is all about collecting things.

Are you a collector? If so, what are some of the things you collect?

I’m not really a collector, no, although I do have a nice collection of random crap on my desk right now. I used to collect stamps though.

If you could collect anything… no matter how rare or expensive, what would it be?

Money 😉 . If not, probably something boring like DVDs.

Looking around you, what is some ordinary, everyday object you possess that would make an interesting collectable 100 years from now?

Probably my iPod Mini. Since the first generation models are now discontinued as of Wednesday they may well become collectors items, like the first generation iPods kind-of are now.

FQ RECOMMENDED: Are there any public collections you enjoy (museums, galleries, etc.) that we should know about?

I like the National Railway Museum in York with its impressive collection of trains. It’s well worth a visit if you’re in the city, and thanks to an extension to the footbridge in York station it’s now easier to get to as well.
