I'd like to take this opportunity to remind everyone about how our 1401 email distribution lists are structured so messages can be appropriately addressed to their ~200 members.
mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org is for email discussions on 1401 software, like the message below. (If you're going to reply all to it, please change the cc field to 1401_software, thanks!)
[ - for archives see http://mail.computerhistory.org/pipermail/1401_software/ ]
mailto:email@example.com is for the original 1401 (SPACE, WWAM) team members: hardware, software, test, documentation, manufacturing, management, marketing, etc.
[ - for archives see http://mail.computerhistory.org/pipermail/1401_founders/ ]
mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org is for the volunteer team restoring and maintaining our two 1401 systems at the CHM.
[ - for archives see http://mail.computerhistory.org/pipermail/1401_team/ ]
mailto:email@example.com is for folks who have expressed an interest in following 1401 events, or emails of general interest (.
[ - for archives see http://mail.computerhistory.org/pipermail/1401_interest/ ]
Some folks are on multiple lists (founders + software, founders + team, etc.)
Etiquette: When you receive a message from one of these 1401 distribution lists, please do your fellow list members a favor and do not respond with a "reply all".
This CHM website allows individuals to joint these aliases: http://mail.computerhistory.org/mailman/listinfo All emails are archived, btw.
I'd like to encourage emails, but please keep the best list in mind. You can also send something to me or Ed Thelen first, if you're not sure what the broader interest might be.
We're always on the look out for any 1401 artifacts you might find around your house! We've recently received some great stuff -- marketing brooches, 1401 programs, films (French 1401 promotional film), etc -- from a Great Britain home cleaning out.
