RCR Episode 185: Virtual retrocomputing

Panelists: Paul Hagstrom (hosting) and Jack Nutting (not hosting)

Topic: Virtual retrocomputing

For things you can’t physically interact with, how would you like to see or experience retrocomputers? What’s important to you for, say, an internet-accessible museum? Photos, movies, emulation? In-browser? Documentation? “Everything, all the things” is a possible answer, but realistically, what would you use, and what might the use case be? What is frustrating about existing online repositories you’ve used? Is there anything that you’d find more useful than things you’ve seen already? There’s a lot of possible information, maybe too much to really digest in one place.
