I'm part of a Tokyo Retrocomputing group that you might find
interesting, then. We do monthly meetups[1] (the next one is most
likely January 18th, one week after the January TLUG Technical Meetup)
and we also have a Telegram channel for which I'll send you an invite
if you send me private email.


The main focus of the group to date has been late 70s and
early-to-mid-80s 8-bit microcomputers, since many of us own several of
these, but in the latter half of this year I also started doing
extensive reading on 1960s and 1970s LISP implementations.

It's also much harder to understand what's going on in your computer,
and pretty much impossible to understand it completely. That's one of
the attractions of pre-'85 machines; it's reasonable for one person to
have a fairly complete understanding of _everything_ down to (and
often including) the chip level.
