MACE
there's alot to like there.
There is great world history that would be so great to cover but
we probably won't for lack of exhibit pieces so America makes sense.
It messes up the acronym but... Revolution instead of Evolution?
(Or is that more like a book name...)

>>> I was thinking... should our new museum have a formal name, as in, "The XYZ Place, sponsored by the Vintage Computer Federation"...?
>>> Or if anyone asks, do we just call it VCF Headquarters?
>>> If we do think it should have some name, then what should that name be?
>>> I like how Paul Allen's group calls their place a "living" museum. Of course, that word is taken, so we'd need some other word.
>>> Maybe "museum" also isn't the right word. Our home at InfoAge is more of a hub and community center for vintage computing in the region. Perhaps, if we give it a name, we should think of a word that reflects this.
>>> It would be awesome if the perfect word also started with F to continue our theme of the Vintage Computer Federation owning the Vintage Computer Festival (East/West), Vintage Computer Forum, and Vintage Computer... Funhouse? Fraternity? No, those don't work.
>>> Let's hear some suggestions (real ones please; let's not clog the thread with the smart-assery.)
>>> I'm thinking that unless we come up with something GREAT, then we should just stick with Vintage Computer Federation as the name for the physical space.
