Hi all --

If anyone's taking a summer vacation to the east coast, then consider visiting our computer museum here in New Jersey.

It's located at the InfoAge Science Center. The center is a former Marconi station and Army Signal Corps base ("Evans Signal Lab" ... no it wasn't named for me!) which closed in the late 1990s.

In addition to the computer museum, our center also has a radio/TV museum, model trains exhibit, shipwreck exhibit, military tech exhibit, and (soon) an electronic warfare exhibit ... etc., etc.

The museum is open (most) Sundays from 1pm - 4pm, and other times by appointment for private tours, if anyone's taking a trip east this summer. Contact yours truly for an appointment.

We're also the site of VCF East (September 12-13).

On a related note, here is some info about computer history that actually happened at our base/museum: http://tinyurl.com/llcqwq
