the plastic cover is so may be better for a MARCH member for that. I would
think letting them type on the keyboard is fine.
It will be interesting to see how this goes. Long demos don't work well
during the normal show hours so its hard to really convey what usage
of these machines was really like.
>> I would think letting them type on the keyboard is fine.Yes. We already do that.
A few times, when people were experienced or just very interested, I demo'd writing/reading to paper tape (just a little).
But it's been a while, and I forget how to do it!
