-Instead of having ​the Demu website simply mirror ​data from other sources ​am going to try doing curated selection from our collection (and others).  ​While I have been reluctant to do this because I want to maximize the amount of time I can spend adding new content into the collection, I think in the long run it will be useful and interesting.+Computer applications and other misc files are available in the [[https://​archive.org/​details/​DEMU_Collection|The DEMU Collection]] at The Internet Archive. ​ This collection differs from Classic PC Games, as it is primarily a quick automated process to make old archives available with limited meta data.  Generally ​I try to provide ​correct title, ​and some type of description.  ​Online play will not be available.
  
-**This format is brand new.  ​So there is nothing here yet.**+In the future I would like to crowd source manual curation through The DEMU Collection to improve the quality, however, due to the type of material I'm not sure there would be much interest.  ​You can [[dizit|view technical details]] on my process, and submit your thoughts or help.
