Welcome to Discourse

VCF’s mission is to preserve computing history through education, outreach, conservation, and restoration. We strive to accomplish this through family friendly hands-on activities at our museum, at regional and global events, and by fostering and nurturing the expansion of our on-line and in-person communities. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We formed in autumn 2015 from the DNA of related groups. These included the original Vintage Computer Festival, founded in 1997 by Sellam Ismail; a club called MARCH (Mid-Atlantic Retro Computing Hobbyists), founded in 2004 by Evan Koblentz and Andy Meyer; and the Vintage Computer Forum, founded in 2004 by Erik Klein.
