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