Cynde Moya, Collections Manager at Living Computers:
Museum + Labs
Cynde Moya is Collections Manager at Living Computers: Museum
+ Labs. Located in Seattle, Washington, Living Computers is a
computer museum that provides hands-on experiences using computers
ranging from micros to mainframes. (Last time I was there, there
was a Xerox Alto, an Apple I, and yes, an Atari 400 with a number
of game carts, plus big iron like a Control Data 6500 and DEC
PDP-10 - all those machines and more usable by visitors.)
As Collections Manager, Cynde takes care of the museum's
collection, and catalogs it.
