Jeremias Herberg now a board member of Learning Options*Open Portal (LO*OP) Center

December 2015

Jeremias  has been invited to become a board member of one of the oldest nonprofits in the practice and history of learning with computers, the Learning Options*Open Portal, Inc. The LO*OP Center opened in 1975 as the second public access computer center located outside a museum. Here kids and lay people could use and play with personal computers like the Apple I (model 1!) years before their mass marketization. The center was created by Liza Loop, an educator and consultant deeply involved in the pioneering computer hobby groups of the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1970s. Jeremias met Liza during his research in the area and is helping her to build a virtual museum (hcle.wikispaces.com/).
