Although I'm outside the age range, depending on memory rather than a
collection for information, I'd advise anyone who got into this to make
sure that they can be part of the editing process. Researching and opining
about something is one matter if you're sitting in front of a computer and
fact-checking; it's quite another kettle of fish if you're asked to think
on your feet real-time.
When I think back over the late 70's and 80's and all of the harebrained
underfunded (and some overfunded) projects I had pitched at me by a bunch
of guys with a "good idea", I'd be afraid of running into one of these "we
made and delivered a couple hundred of these and then we closed down"
relics. Few have any idea of how many IBM BC "near clones" there were.
I think they may have outnumbered the Z80/8085-type 8 bitters.
