      Dam I hit send on that last e-mail instead of save draft

      Ok Evan, you are always looking for computer history related to NJ.
      Well here is some history for the museum.
      So yea I am happy.

      BTW, it seems there was a RCA museum, but it just closed

       I sent them an e-mail stating I was looking for information about Joseph A. Weisbecker and the COSMAC chip.

      Unfortunately, Mr. Weisbecker is deceased.

      Joyce, Thank you for checking. Do you have any information about the original COSMAC 1801 computer? This as far as I can tell was the first computer-ish

        Joyce,
        Thank you for checking.  Do you have any information about the original COSMAC 1801 computer?  This as far as I can tell was the first computer-ish device based on the COSMAC processor. 
        Thanks

        Hi.
         
           I never received an e-mail from you about my father, Joe Weisbecker, but please try again :). Mother donated all of Dad's papers and prototypes to the David Sarnoff Library, so I only have a few things related to the programs I wrote and sold to RCA for the VIP and Studio II.
         
           Try e-mailing again at this address (minmax_3512@...). I'd be happy to correspond with you.
         
           Joyce
