Seeking help, inspiration
Hello, I hope this is not a totally abhorrent incursion into this forum, but I’m a little lost with things and wanted to throw it out there just to see if anyone had any ideas. I’ve been a professional computer programmer for ever, but have reached a point in my life where bashing keyboards for my own ends is no longer fun or meaningful, and neither is the on-going accumulation of all my worldly belongings (we're all just flies on a tablecloth don't you know?). I’d like to do something for the next generation. I’m thinking along the lines of buying a huge pile of computer junk from E-Bay, and working with a bunch of enthusiastic kids to turn it into a spaceship simulator... or something.
Just don’t know how I would begin to go about this. The single biggest problem is finding a venue with the requisite capacity and the security of a Scottish castle... well, I suppose a Scottish castle would fit the bill! Joking aside, does anybody have an idea of an organization that would be interested in working with me on this? Or maybe someone knows a better forum where this might be more productively discussed?
