  1. Telecommunications has come a long way in just a few times. Until the early 1980s, party lines—telephone loop circuits where multiple homes would share a single phone line—were a common fact of life. Each house on a party line had its own handset, but they were all on one line.
    We’re almost on the verge of another revolution in how we think about telecommunications. Whether it’s AI running contact centers or contextual conversations that voice, and SMS, cloud communication APIs have democratized telecoms innovation.

  2. Find a small business that has one of those giant copy/scanners and ask them if you could use it a couple hours a week.

    It’ll scan at 30 pages a min.

  3. If I was closer and had a scanner to do the stuff in bulk… I would

    Willing to host data to help in archival efforts, if anyone finds something appropriate to preserve

  4. Old lingering telephone technology has caused me so many problems and marital issues with late night outages and freak outs… I say BURN IT ALL! In with the DIGITAL REVOLUTION! ?

  5. Landfill?! Is that a bad joke or what.
    Dump it in the ground and let rain water seep through polluting ground water. Generations of humans and animals will get cancer and hormones disturbed.

    What about recycling.

  6. Sweet **Jeebus** that’s a lot!

    I’m more than willing to donate some spare cash to a group or campaign ensuring this gets properly digitized and saved for sharing.

  7. Someone send this to Cathode Ray Dude, or Tech Tangents!!

  8. Had I lived closer I’d rent an U-haul and grab that stuff and have it scanned for posterity.

  9. I wish I could I’ve been working on the long lines towers recently for my job

  10. I have a scansnap scanner and would be interested in assisting with some of it.

  11. This is why museum digitization is so important. :/

  12. This is a Facebook add right? So OP is not the person with the collection? If you are plz dm or chat me.

  13. “Must be picked up or it’s going to landfill”

    You’re gonna throw out three decades of history just like that? What is this, Soviet Russia?

  14. Someone contact the Internet Archive, they love this kind of shtuff.

  15. Tell people who have wood stoves. Thats like 4 winters worth of heat.

  16. Someone needs to go grab these then notify Jason Scott and or Archive Team.

  17. I mentioned on the original post that Evan Doorbell, who is by far the most prolific audio archivist of the old telephone network, lives only an hour or so away in Grand Prairie. I don’t know if he has the means to preserve or even pick this stuff up, much less store it (a screenshot of a Facebook post with “11+” photos doesn’t leave me feeling I know how much material is involved). Jason Scott lives in Boston iirc. I’m in upstate New York. I would be happy to scan some of this stuff (I can’t do bound books though) if need be, if someone can get them to me, but I can’t get to Texas, much less back with all that stuff.

    EDIT: Jason Scott from the Internet Archive has asked on Twitter that people stop asking him about this, so I’m assuming that means they’ve got someone to go get it.

  18. I would take some of these if it wasn’t a continent away. Even if it doesn’t all go into one spot, It’s better than a landfill.

    I’ve already got a couple of fragments of early telecoms history for my own country sitting in my library.

    Let’s hope these find one or more safe havens one way or another. Trashing pulp romance fiction is one thing, if these go to the landfill we may actually lose things out of history entirely however.

  19. Some of this stuff might not exist in digital form. It was closely held when it was fresh, and a lot of those companies have gone splat or been acquired and who knows what happened to their old stuff.

    I see a DACS manual which would be great, because that’s the progenitor of a whole genre of equipment. I’m sure AT&T has the design docs somewhere, but will we ever see them?

  20. I’m about an hour away and probably have space to get it scanned onto my storage, but all I have as far as scanners is a crappy multifunction printer with a flatbed.

    Edit: If someone with a nice scanner in the DFW area wants to work with me on digitizing these, lemme know.

  21. Oh, tip off those mentioned in the comms to date.

    In the U.K. there’s the telecoms heritage group. Perhaps there’s something in the u.s. too.

  22. Damn. While I love hoarding digital stuff. Physically hoarding is a bit beyond uncomfortable. Maybe scanning it and then landfill.
