Hi all,

Please forgive me if this message is inappropriate for the list. I am
hoping some members will be interested in the following project.

For the past year and a half I have been working on a team that is
developing a documentary
<https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/messagenotunderstood/message-not-understood/>
on the history of personal computing. Our goal is to interview the very
people who laid the foundations for personal computing while they are still
with us, learning about their original visions and getting their take on
the present. In this sense it is both an aspiring feature length
documentary project but also an endeavor in oral history and posterity.

Last fall we were able to shoot our first three interviews. We used these
to make a short teaser <https://vimeo.com/429045920>, with the idea it
could be used to raise funds for future rounds of interviews. That said, we
are currently in the middle of a Kickstarter campaign
<https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/messagenotunderstood/message-not-understood/>
to get the second round funded. If you are interested in learning more,
feel free to reach out to me directly and to visit the film's campaign site
<https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/messagenotunderstood/message-not-understood/>
and website <https://messagenotunderstood.com/>.

Thanks!
