Mary Hopper has done most of the work on maintaining and documenting collections, creating exhibits and websites as well as hosting events.
However, many other people have also made contributions over the years. 1
First and foremost, extreme gratitude goes to Neil Carlson for providing extensive moral, logistical and financial support to the New Media Museum and all of the projects that led to it since the early 1990s.
Financial contributors to an Indiegogo campaign in the Fall of 2013 included Marlyn and Norma Carlson, Renee Brown, Mike Morrison, Brendan Powers, Brian Perry, J Stanley Koper, Dwight Bell, Harlan Hersey, David Ross, Michelle Johnson, Mark James and Michael Bates. These contributions were used to fund the NEW Computer Museum’s Launch on October 20, 2013.
Exhibitors at the that launch event included Mary Hopper of Digital Den (NEW Computer Museum’s sponsor), Dan Berman, Michael Thompson and Harlan Hersey of the Rhode Island Computer Museum, Adam Rosen of the Vintage Mac Museum and Bryan Harwell of Replay’d. Key attendees at that event included Mark Check of the Museum of Science, George Fifield of Boston Cyberarts and Steve Finberg of Swapfest: The Flea at MIT.
1 Many contributions acknowledged here related to a prior iteration of the New Media Museum called the NEW Computer Museum. Items that were given to the NEW Computer Museum were given to the Rhode Island Computer Museum in 2018 when the NEW Computer Museum became the New Media Museum.
