Exploring software on vintage computers at Living Computers: Museum + Labs
Cynde Moya
Living Computers: Museum + Labs, United States of America
 
Most published works in the museology field dismiss the notion of keeping vintage computing equipment running in such a way as to let visitors explore software. Living Computers: Museum + Labs has a different model. We run real software on restored equipment for people to use, onsite or online.
