in reply to Anyone interested in old Perl Journal and Perl Review magazines?

I haven't even been able to find the Perl Review issues online, which sort of surprises me. I think I had a writeup in one of the 2004 issues, which I'm sure I could cringe over now.

If you have the complete set of both runs; TPJ and TPR, maybe you could donate them to the Smithsonian so that they're archived and available into the future to anyone who walks in there.

If I were to ask you to send them to me, I would thumb through them for a few hours, read a few articles, and after a couple weeks they would just sit in my basement storage room next to all my OReilly books that I now have access to through Oreilly Learning. The most important aspect of them sitting in my basement storage room would be that they would be preserved for some future handoff to someone else who wants to thumb through them and store them, a few years down the road. If the Smithsonian would accept them, or possibly the Computer History Museum in Mountainview, CA, that would make them more publicly available for a longer period of time.

    Great ideas Dave, thanks. I will look into donating them to the Smithsonian or the Computer History Museum.

      I'd be interested in knowing if they accept them.

      Also, I'm not aware of what their copyrights are; if they're still within copyright protection. But if not, it would be interesting to see them published in their entirety online. I think TPJ is available online, but I've never found TPR. Perhaps that could be requested as part of the plan when donating.

        I sent a request to the Computer History Museum. I will update here when I hear from them. The museum is closed due to the pandemic, so I'm not expecting a quick reply.
