Helping Out, the Wish List and Tell us Stuff!
Read about why the DigiBarn project exists and get in touch through our web form or by telephone or join our mailing list, and read our past newsletters. Volunteer to contribute oral histories (your own or interview someone you know) for DigiBarn Radio or DigiBarn TV. Feel free to exchange links with us or offer a donation as we are missing some key artifacts, and you can help fill the gaps in our collection. We need financial support to improve the infrastructure of the barn and volunteers to sort out and organize the collection, do web updates and scanning. Please contact us if you might have resources or time to support this project. Lastly, please contribute to our Guestbook!
The Wish List
We are missing some key artifacts, can you help "fill the gaps" in our collection?
We are seeking donations of systems, documentation, software, videos, and interviews with YOU about them. We also need help in procuring cyber-exhibit content. Lastly, if you know how to get old computers working, we need your help for various restoration projects here at the Digibarn. Lots of great folks are already working with the DigiBarn and we would love to have you on our team. If interested, please feel free to contact me, curator and drum beater Bruce Damer, to discuss literally anything.
Systems we are still seeking for the collections include:
- Apple 1 (single board computer, cassette interface)
- Apple Lisa 1 with Twiggly (5 1/4 inch) floppies (or just the face plate for the Lisa 1) and working early model Apple Lisa 2 or Lisa with Mac/XL
- Any low serial number or other prototype system of any model and brand (Apple, Commodore, Atari, IBM etc etc)
- Connection Machine CM-2 or CM-1 (all we have is one chip!)
- Scelbi Mark 8
- Sigma Laserview (L-View) card and/or Wyse-700 and card monitor for high resolution display of our Elixir Software
- S-100 or "home brew" systems of all kinds
- TV Typewriter by Don Lancaster
- Videotape or Audio recordings of people, products (early on pre-1985 unless well known people).
- Xerox Alto, Dorado, Dicentra, Daisy or other early Xerox workstations (don't have to be working) or other Xerox artifacts
- Rare documents including Home Brew Computer Club newsletters, early Byte magazines, Computer Notes from MITS, People's Computer Company and more.
