I will convert the Plan 28 web site (http://plan28.org/) to a non-profit organization whose goal will be:
1. To help digitize and make available in electronic form all of Charles Babbage's notes and plans associated with the Difference Engine and Analytical Engine.
2. To fund the study of Babbage's Analytical Engine plans to determine what best constitutes a complete design for the Engine.
3. To coordinate the building of a computer simulation of the Analytical Engine that shows its working in 3D with accurate physics.
4. To build the Analytical Engine and donate it to a museum in Great Britain for public display.
