Vintage Computer Festival (VCF) East is a hands-on, family-friendly celebration of computer history. Activities include a book sale, classes, consignment sale, exhibit hall, food, lectures, museum tours, prizes, vendors, workshops, and more. Why "9.1"? 9.0 was skipped in 2013 due to damage from Hurricane Sandy. VCF East takes place April 4-6, 2014, at the InfoAge Science Center in Wall, New Jersey. This is the first time the event will take place over three days. For full details, check out the attached PDF flyer or visit the Website. Personally, I'll likely only be able to make it for the Saturday event, but all three days are definitely worth checking out. Let us know if you're going!
Just a final reminder that Vintage Computer Festival (VCF) East 5.0 is Saturday, September 13th and Sunday, September 14th, at the InfoAge Science Center in Wall Township, New Jersey, USA. For more information, please visit: http://www.vintage.org/2008/east/ . Unfortunately due to commitments with the book I will neither be attending nor presenting this year, but it's not because I don't want to. If you can make it, I highly recommend the event.
Well, I finally got around to posting the VCF East 4.0 2007 photos from the Saturday session on June 9, 2007. Unfortunately I was not able to find a single online photo sharing service (since I didn't want to kill bandwidth here at AA or on my personal Website) that met all of my needs, but Flickr took care of the album part of it all and Photobucket took care of the easily-embed-photos-on-here part (though I doubt I'll use it much as it's a lot of work to get it to display right).
Check out the full set of photos here. I'm still working with Bill Degnan of the MARCH club on getting the audio hosted, so hopefully I'll have that back up soon and easily accessible. Enjoy and don't forget to leave your comments here!
I have made the zip files available of the WMA-converted (downgraded) WAV recordings from some of the panel seminars at the 2007 version of VCF East (4.0) in Wall Township at the InfoAge Learning Center, from Saturday, June 9, 2007. There are some true gems in there, so if you have ANY interest in the origins of personal computing and Commodore, I suggest you give these a listen!
The panel's star was legend Chuck Peddle, inventor of the famous MOS Technology 6502 chip, used in a wide variety of classic single-board computers and in microcomputers such as the Commodore PET, C-64 and the Apple II. Peddle was piped in via videoconference (Skype) from Sri Lanka. Multi-generational Commodore engineers Bil Herd, Bob Russell, and Dave Haynie were live onsite.
