I call foul. This doesn't even look like it's powered up.

Edit: Wow. 3.5 years on HN and my first down-voted post. I guess I should have added a sarcasm tag or stick with keeping comments "safe".

I would have thought: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:LISP_machine.jpg

That would have been really cool, and a true hackers machine, but I imagine that the days when LISP needs (or benefits from) custom hardware are long gone.

Love the symmetry of the photo...triangle. (I suspect with the orange background that it was taken at the YC office? http://m.inc.com/?incid=96)
