The community meets here

The TechArchives project is expanding steadily. We hope to cover more and more aspects and eras of information technology in Ireland by collecting testimonies and by preserving digital evidence. In order to cover a broad range of topics and timeframes, however, we will need the input and perspectives of a broad range of people.

This forum is where you can have a say about the project’s activities and priorities. What subjects deserve more research ? What stories have we missed ? What material might be lost forever if it is not catalogued and stored now ?

In addition, TechArchives needs to interact with other IT history groups and initiatives, such as hardware collectors, web archivists and the alumni networks of individual companies. This forum offers a meeting place for everyone with an interest in technology heritage, supporting exchanges of knowledge and experience across this wider community.
