BV Computer Museum – First Post!

For those of us who know what a IBM 360, an ADM 3, a  Z-80, and a 8” floppy drive are  – or those who want to know about coal fired computers – here is your chance!

Pictures of the Collection 2013

 With the support of Fibertown/Astin Partners and McLane Intelligent Solutions a modest collection of “old” computers will be put on display in March in downtown Bryan.

The Collection’s new home!

Basically, the idea is to be social on First Fridays with docents and visiting exhibits from local collectors.  If you think of a Hot Rod Club you get the idea

We are looking for help in three areas.  

  • Public Relations/Communications (things like updating the WordPress website, PSA’s, signage, announcements).
  • Curating the collection (things like: labeling, cleaning, moving, seeing if the systems actually run, collection of donations, etc.).
  •  Volunteer coordination (things like: lining up docents for First Fridays and helping fill the other positions).

Some of you have already offered to help move the collection – we are floating March 15th as the move date.
