That seems to be the wrong way round. The people are getting interested,
prices are rising, and a few people want to start an organization to
perhaps regulate it.

Such an organization could "preach" that many of these old computers are
far more common that people realize, and perhaps so many won't be fooled.
For example, page one of the official journal might have an article about
how ALL old Macs have signatures inside them. Or even section of
classified ads for FREE COMPUTERS.
