Tales of Computing - Lemmy
Good stories, bad hacks, interesting hardware/software, and the quirky people behind it all. Let's sit back and enjoy this weird and wonderful vocation.

I’ve been trying to kick-start a community on a niche that I really enjoy - computer history with an emphasis on the people involved, computing culture, narratives and whimsy. It’s kind of hard to define concisely. It’s not news, it’s not retrocomputing, and it doesn’t have to be about really old stuff.

I don’t know if it’s a sustainable concept. I’m the only poster so far and I’m going to run out of bookmarks eventually. If you like this sort of thing, please jump in and contribute! We’ll see what interesting things we can dig up together.


Would the community welcome the restoration of old electronics like the subreddit r/retrobattlestations does? Or is it only history?


I don’t have a good handle on what “the community” welcomes yet but give it a go, by all means! Sounds interesting.


I’m more interested in a community where I can learn tricks and tips of the trade when it comes to website-managing, but I’ll take a look-see.
