We visited the InfoAge Museum in New Jersey over the weekend, including the Vintage Computer Federation on-site. Pictured here is Lee Felsenstein's Sol-20 Computer, signed, the first all-in-one-personal home computer. Lee talked about the Sol-20 and his work in episode 4 of the podcast.

@artistsandhackers wow did not realise you had an episode on community memory. Will check it out! Almost a decade ago I went into a community memory rabbit hole. I think I read everything that was avail at the time, mostly old articles and papers, and it was not that much. Seems like since then it has gained a lot more visibility.
@320x200 it's been very influential to me! Glad you're inspired by it as well. Let me know what you think of the episode.
@320x200 These are fun rabbit holes:
Tom Swift Lives and Convivial Computing
The Tom Swift Terminal: A Convivial Cybernetic Device
We are an instance for discussions around cultural freedom, experimental, new media art, net and computational culture, and things like that.
