Re: Ur HP 9825 stuff from a primary source

CHM might be a good ultimate destination, but not before things are reviewed, copied and shared as appropriate. Their archives are a lot like the caves of the Smithsonian as experienced by Indiana Jones. What goes in may never come out – ask Lyle about his DECUS materials. I think this would apply especially to unique items like lab books and development notes. Items wouldn’t be accessible until inventoried – which could take years, dependent on priority and funding – and then only to “serious scholars”.

 

I don’t want to diminish the value of what they do, but their focus is more on vacuum-sealed preservation rather than shared access.

Sounds like stuff that the Computer History Museum should be interested in archiving, particularly the lab books and development notes. Have you contacted them? Should I?
