Coming to you from Seattle…
The visit to the Living Computer Museum (LCM) yesterday was fantastic!
The LCM team took turns sharing an intense and fascinating behind the scenes perspective on their journey from starting out as Paul Allen’s personal vintage computer collection to becoming the full-fledged “living computer museum” that they are today.

There is no doubt that Digital Den should aspire to follow in their footsteps as it evolves in the coming years. If you are ever in Seattle, you should definitely take the time to go visit.
On other fronts, the IndieGogo campaign is moving along, and Digital Den moved up to flipping between pages 4 and 5 of the Technology section this week. Thank you to everyone who contributed, “liked” and “shared” — it’s working! The key is to not lose momentum as we move into the final third of the campaign. The goal is to get enough activity to be on the top page or two as the campaign debuts in the “final countdown” section of the site next week.
Finally, mark your calendars!
Digital Den will have a table at the next MIT SwapFest on Sept. 15th.
If you attend, please stop by and say hi!
There will also be public hours Sat., Sept. 14th and Sat., Sept. 21st from 11 am to 2 pm.
Thanks to everyone for your continued support!!!
