ANNOUNCING OUR ALPHA PHASE! JOHN C TOOLE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR & CEO C O M P U T E R H I S T O RY M U S E U M With the extraordinary efforts and support of so many people this year, we have reached another major milestone. The Museum initiated its Alpha Phase on June 2 at 1401 N Shoreline Blvd! This marks the official opening of a new Visible Storage display area, the dedication of the Hahn Auditorium, and the beginning of our public presence in our new home. Yet there’s much more ahead to realize our dream—plans are already underway for the Museum’s Beta Phase, and Releases 1.0 and 2.0 over the next several years. It’s exciting to see the opportunities our new home has given us. In the new Visible Storage, for example, you will still find many favorite artifacts from the display at Moffett Field. However, we now have an entirely new look, labels for all of the items, and about double the number of artifacts in a larger gallery for a more complete representation of computing history. A great online virtual visible storage can be found at . I know you will be pleased to see how we are bringing that story to the world. We also opened our new Hahn Auditorium and multi-purpose room, named in honor of the Hahn family, our largest donor to date. Eric Hahn is also a trustee who has helped us grow dramatically and who served as the first chair of the Development Committee in California. This space will become a community gathering place for computing history enthusiasts, host everything from history lectures to major events, and allow us to record important events for posterity. Our new building has been drawing the interest of corporations, attracting many new volunteers, and allowing trustees, staff, and volunteers to productively work together in one environment. Since June, we have moved most of our collection from offsite storage into unused portions of the Museum building, and we may soon be offering special member tours to explore the deep recesses of our great collection. Although accomplishments have been great, the economic climate has been extremely challenging. We need your help in finding people and organizations to support us as we grow, and are looking for volunteers to help in many areas, including development. We also reorganized early this year in anticipation of next year’s economic situation, and have consolidated some functions. The staff has been tremendous during this difficult time of change, and you will see some of their titles have changed. With our new presence in Mountain View, you can tangibly see how we are able to grow into a great museum. Yet our programs take support and dedicated people. Please consider increasing your annual campaign support and making a capital campaign gift. In addition, we have just kicked off a great corporate membership program and have created recognition walls for all to see. For information on the

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
