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.
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
David Greelish gave a presentation on his new book project on the Apple Lisa.
Meeting adjourned at 3:10pm
