Business

Updates/discussion for Vintage Computer Festival Southeast 8.0 plans from Earl Baugh:

  • Still looking for venue.  Must make decision by end of month
    • So far the best lead is the Marriott at the intersection of Clairmont and I-85 but the current deal is $5K with a commitment to room rentals if our reserved block doesn’t sell.
  • Some sponsorship opportunities exist.   All still pending.
    • Someone is in contact with Earl about combining our show with an Amiga meet-up/show
  • From the list of locations pointed to by Cindy, there is a location up 400 that used to be an old Sears that now does conferences.  Estimated 4K/sqft for $4K.  Mark will forward details.
  • Earl and Ed will interface with the museum on possibilities on hosting the show there either by wholesale rental of the space or the same relationship as past years
  • Yet another open call for volunteers to scout places to rent. 

Other business:

  • Recommendations from several people for Brian Kernighan’s new self-published book.
  • Mention of some other UNIX history such as the discovery of print-outs of the original UNIX source code.  LCM+L has actually booted the recovered code on a PDP7 and posted it on YouTube
  • Nolan has submitted a design for VCF-SE 8.0 t-Shirt.  Need to decide after we find a venue if we can do a run of shirts in 2-color print instead of single.
  • Everyone had fun at the Lawrenceville Hamfest this past weekend

Meeting adjourned at 3:10pm
