If you live in the southeastern region of the US, VCF-SE 2.0 is happening this weekend in Roswell, GA (greater Atlanta). Come on down. I will be giving a PechaKucha 20x20 presentation titled "IBM PCjr: From Peanut to Practical" about the JR-IDE project.

Vintage Computer Festival Southeast 2.0
May 3,4 2014

The Atlanta Historical Computer Society and the Computer Museum of America are pleased to announce the second annual Vintage Computer Festival Southeast. We have selected the 3rd and 4th of May to make it easy for people to attend both VCF East and VCF Southeast this year.

The venue will be the same former CompUSA store in Roswell GA as last year. This year's exhibit space will be greatly enlarged over last year, occupying the whole retail space of the store. About 2/3 of the space will be the exhibition LINK – Personal Computing from Switches to Pockets. The exhibit is a journey from the present back to the Kenbak-1. The remaining 1/3 of the retail space will contain hobbyist vintage computing exhibits. For those who missed last year or who would like to see it again, the Apple Pop-Up museum from last year's festival will again be available.

The popular retro-gaming area and introduction to soldering activity will be available again. This year, we are also working to bring in a number of vendors, assemble a stellar slate of speakers, and offer workshop experiences. Of course, the kids' scavenger hunt will be back this year too.

Can you post the presentation after you give it for those of us in far-flung places?

They are not up. It was recorded, however our video guy hasn't had time to process all the footage.
