      Evan,

      Now if you could get somebody like Walter Cronkite or James Earl Jones to narrate a dialogue about the various computers would be great. Have it recorded on a PC where someobdy could just press a button beside each exhibit for playback. Maybe the Infoage folks might have some connections to get somebody like that.

      Heard back from Fred, re: how he envisions the computer museum operating.  He said:
       
      >>>> The computer collection would be open by appointment for groups at first. We will start opening it on a regular basis as we can. It takes time to build attendance. The goal is to make it interactive so we do not need club members / experts to convey the message/information. Plus, once we capture the info from the experts their hard work and knowledge does not get lost.
       
      To me that's the right answer...
       
      Anybody have related or generic thoughts on how (or if) we should operate a club museum?
