It’s been some time that I’ve considered creating a virtual exhibit for some of the computers I’ve been able to collect to honour their place in computing history. Now it’s official! This is the start of a new web presence dedicated to showcasing vintage computing technology.
As someone who working in higher education for many years, I’ve seen technology move from primitive to very advanced. Your glimpse at technology, no matter when it starts, always starts at “primitive”. Today’s youth takes many things for granted and with current focus on “user experience”, the basics of computing is getting more hidden than ever.
This site will display some vintage computers and their place in history as well as help out new collectors with resources to learn about the various technology.
While the site is for everyone, there will be some focus on Canadian vintage computer collecting. As with any collector from outside of the United States, there are differences in how one goes through the process of collecting and resources for finding the next vintage masterpiece. This will also be covered from my perspective. I will also have some forums set up for discussion by peers.
The site is new so I will be filling in portions as I go along so please check back soon!
