Everyone else: Adam's a good guy. I've known him for several years and
he exhibited at the last (two or three?) VCF East shows.
> Isn't “future collectibles” by definition a relative term? Some of us are already collecting PowerPC iMacs and other devices of that era.
People collect all kinds of stuff that isn't yet vintage.
> Picking the cutoff point as to what is truly vintage is really arbitrary
Way to begin your list tenure by opening a barrel of worms. :)
Bill Dudley's point was simply: it is wise for VCFed to collect things
that we think will eventually be vintage, not just things that already
are vintage. Thus, a lamp-Mac belongs in our collection. It may *
already * be "vintage" because it became historic from Day One of its
existence. Others can debate that :) but part of my job is to decide
what belongs in the collection, and my decision is made...
