Just got back on after a hiatus. I could pick up anything in center city area. I live near
by and could arrange my path from work accordingly.

I just saw the update on this, and had to backtrack to find this original posting. So.. I'm wondering what's left.. and I'm also curious about MARCH's printed media collection.
What sort of space is allotted for magazines (and books)? Is it possible to expand this? While I understand the retro vs. vintage vs. modern, etc. . but things are constantly a moving target.. and in 10 or 20 years things will be different. It would be great if there could be a publicly accessible complete collection.
I have a 'computer magazine archive' that I've had a small bit of.. interesting response in regards to. I'm trying to whittle down the collection a significant amount -- heck, I want to whittle down my possessions in general, and I figured I would eventually donate a good portion of it to MARCH. In particular a number of the magazines were from an early collection of Mac Magazines from a gentleman in Philly that I feel I would be remiss if I didn't find them a good home.

If you're interested in going to the May event, we could probably split the load up, since I was only planning on making one trip (most of the Macworlds I got, about 8 document boxes, are WAY too new, but I was going to bring the books up because there's a lot of good stuff there).

There were some media-related (Photoshop, 3D stuff) magazines left, but nothing I'd call "vintage"; predominantly 2000s onward. If you're interested, I could put you in touch with the guy managing the estate, but I suspect what remains has probably been "processed" already.
