I don't see any evidence of it being a museum either virtual or brick and
mortar. I don't see any evidence of it being a 501c3. It just seems to be
some guy who created a website who is enthusiastic about vintage computers
and organizes virtual events. I read all the details of what he posted on
his website, only a cursory glance. I was also informed today that attempts
by another member to contact the organizer went unsuccessful. It also seems
like there are only stock photos on the site rather than ones that were
taken by the organizer.

I heard that there are some people on an exclusive mailing list where he is
organizing the virtual event through Zoom tomorrow.

I first heard about this event today through Bill Mensch and Stephen Cass.
The organizer seems to have interviewed Bill Mensch and Liza Loop.
