Furthering the preservation of Juiced.GS

The Information Cube

Two years ago, Juiced.GS was archived by museums, libraries, and institutions around the world. One year ago, we completed those collections when we brought volumes 1–6 back into print.

Today, we continue to expand our preservation efforts by adding two new organizations to the list of archives now charged with the preservation of our Apple II magazine.

Seattle’s Living Computer Museum, founded by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, opened its doors on October 25, 2012. Juiced.GS staff writer Peter Neubauer was one of its first visitors, providing an extensive write-up of his experience in our December issue. The connection between the LCM and Juiced.GS was further recently cemented at the launch party of The New England Wide Computer Museum, or NEW Computer Museum, formerly known as the Digital Den. There, Prof. Mary Hopper made the introduction of Juiced.GS editor Ken Gagne to the LCM’s senior vintage systems engineer, Ian King. As a rapidly growing organization, the LCM was happy to accept a donation of 71 back issues of Juiced.GS, with more to come as they are published.

The Information Cube

Museums aren’t the only organizations interested in Juiced.GS. Mention “archiving” in the retrocomputing world, and one of the first names you’ll hear is Jason Scott: digital historian, employee, guest lecturer, and KansasFest keynote speaker. His Information Cube is a repository of physical artifacts related to the history of computers and their users. Juiced.GS‘s past and future catalog will now be included in this archive as well.
Our thanks to the many historians who are ensuring Juiced.GS‘s place in the story of the personal computer will be known for generations to come!
