I would not be the first to say that would be cool in the Chicago
area... But alas, reality is a very big lack of funding, time and to
some extent, public interest in the Chicago area. Chicago culturally is
a financial business focused area, and although much technology exists
in the area, the culture just doesn't seem to harness the mentality.
Personally, my "ideal museum" I would like to see is a technology
learning center in the Chicago area, with a focus in the history. A
place where the talented youth can have a club like atmosphere with
resources to explore. No better learning it, than doing it, esp. with a
need. I believe the way to advance the technology is to understand the
basics which is easily apparent and understandable in vintage computers.
