A Festival of Vintage Computers

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the December 4th, 2007

Where do old computers go to die? We’re not sure, but we do know where the digital old folks home is. We take a trip down the valley to Mountain View for the 2007 Vintage Computer Festival. We happily discover 8-bit wonders living life as if it were 1980 all over again. We find Commodore PETs and SuperPETs, Atari 400 & 800s, Tandy TRS-80s, Sols, Altairs, Data Generals, HPs and even a LINC from 1962.

    Paul: I was surprised not to see a Sinclair as well! Either they haven’t withstood the test of time or they were so small and inconspicuous that I missed them!

    NICE. Got a kick out of this on many levels.
    Especially for “memory lane.”
