Vintage Tech archives in Bay Area seek moving volunteers today.


Phil Lapsley, vintage computing history buff, writes:

VintageTech, the organizers of the Vintage Computer Festival, are moving their warehouse of historical computers, equipment, software, and documentation from Livermore, CA to Stockton, CA. Volunteers are needed today (Sunday) and tomorrow (Monday) in Livermore to help pack and palletize all their wonderful machines and related ephemera. It is an amazing chance to help a good cause and get up close and personal with a bunch of interesting historical stuff. I have posted a set of photos of some of their wonders at this Flickr link. If you can spare some time, even an hour or two, please contact Sellam Ismail at

    It’s bad enough that Livermore is barely in the “Bay Area” (and certainly not in Silicon Valley), but Stockton is definitely not part of the scene.

    For that matter, why not move the museum to Fresno?
