Dear Digital Den/NEW Computer Museum Supporters,
Here is the latest news about “the journey”…
Digital Den hosted a party on October 20th, and it was a great success!
For those of you who could not be there…
Mark Micheli made a fantastic video that captured the spirit of the event: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PToiS-AAs9E
Rus Gant took some beautiful photos available on Digital Den’s site: https://digital-den.org/first-exhibit-photos/
Ken Gagne also posted an excellent review and photos on his Apple II Bits Blog: http://www.apl2bits.net/2013/10/28/digital-den-launch-party/

initiative to found an organization named the NEW Computer Museum.

There has been quite a bit of media attention over the last few months.
You can find links to the best coverage on the Digital Den web site, but I would like to draw special attention to a great article written by Dave Brooks of the Nashua Telegraph. He really got it right, and I am grateful!
