Tasmanian Computer History Museum

Rather than having to travel interstate or overseas to see and experience old computers, the idea is to form a local museum and populate it with the best examples of the last several decades of computing developments, ideally with hands-on exhibits and a hacklab to allow people to explore, experience, and restore technology (including old computers). In the United Kingdom, computer history is being restored as part of the ICT (Information Communications and Technology) school curriculum.

Hopefully artefacts from Tasmania's early use of computers will also be discovered and catalogued.

The "museum" could either be private, non-profit, or a sub-unit of either or both of the state government museums, whatever seems appropriate.

Anyone interested in furthering this project is invited to email to discuss.
