18 SEP 07: Now operational again! Soon after I established this domain, I decided to install Coppermine--that was a mistake. Too complex for what I wanted. So now, back
to basics and DIY. See Submission Instructions for how to participate.
Site Up 08 DEC 2006.
This is a pet
project and earns no money, so right now it's pretty far down
the list. I hope to get at least a half day once a week to
play with it.
Start checking out all the objects you come
across in your daily life. You might actually find something
Made in America! And when you do, use the Submit Your Find page to
register it with americanartifacts.org.

An Online Museum #8212;Open for Submissions #8226; September 2007
A repository for currently existing
examples of American manufacture--objects bearing the fast disappearing
tag lines--Made in America, Made in U.S., Made in the U.S.A.--an endangered species.
The site was conceived via epiphany when I was looking for something to
keep my VT2000 business cards in. I found an old card case with the
WordPerfect logo on it. There was some fine print stamped on the back in the lower
right corner. As I turned it to the light, I read "Solid Brass. Made in U.S.A."
And then came the epiphany. I knew that today, such a hand-out in any
similar seminar would have been made in China, or Japan, or Korea, but
certainly not in America!
And thus, this online museum of sorts was was born. To record just such adventures among
the hard objects in our lives. Turn them over, read what it says. If
you find something good, Made in the U.S.A, I want to know about it.
I'm making this up as I go along, and right now, no books, clothes, newspapers,
etc. This is focusing on good, old-fashioned industrial production--what they
used to do in the rust belt. Instructions for submitting your entry can be found
on the Instructions page.
