Obsolete Skills (obsoleteskills.com/Skills/ SkForgotten skills from a bygone era A record of the things we knew how to do, which are no longer useful
Obsolete Skills (obsoleteskills.com/Skills/ Skills), as the name suggests, is a great round up of skills that technology has made redundant. Maintained by Brad Kellette, this wiki was inspired by a blog post on the internet recording disappearing skills. They have quite a collection of skills—there are things like how to calculate square root using pencil and paper, format a floppy disk, and churning butter of all things. Beware not to let the nostalgia take over after you browse through.
