Vintage Computer Festival Pacific Northwest 2019!
Do you think old computers are cool? If so come geek out with us at another VCF event in Seattle!
Where: Living Computers: Museum+Labs in Seattle Washington
When: Saturday March 23rd and Sunday March 24th, 2019
We need exhibitors, speakers and volunteers to make this happen! Last year (the first year) was an incredible success; I'd like to build upon that and make the next event a success as well. And we need to restore honor to the PCjr - it was missing last year and it really would steal the show if somebody showed one.
Need inspiration? Here are the exhibitors, speakers and pictures from last year: http://vcfed.org/wp/vcf-pnw-2018/

The IBM PCjr is a personal computer introduced in 1983 and sold through 1985. It had some nice features that other computers did not have at the time, but it was not compatible enough with the rest of the IBM PC family to be successful as a pure PC clone, and initially it was too expensive to compete against "home" machines such as the Apple ][ and the Commodore 64. As a result, the IBM PCjr did not sell well and it is considered to be one of the bigger flops in the industry.
I still like mine though. These web pages are an attempt to preserve the history and technical information of the IBM PCjr.
If you have questions or comments, please email me at mbbrutman at gmail.com. Please, no spam or unreasonable requests. I am interested in hearing your stories about the PCjr and meeting other owners of these fascinating machines.
