Submission + - Vintage Computer Festival East 4.0 THIS WEEKEND (vintage.org)

triple6 writes: "This weekend, vintage computer enthusiasts from all over will converge on the sleepy town of Wall, New Jersey to attend the 4th annual Vintage Computer Festival East. Featuring exhibits of fully functional(!) vintage computers, we'll also have presentations and a marketplace. Help us celebrate the 30th anniversary of Commodore computers at a panel discussion with former Commodore engineers Chuck Peddle (designer of the 6502 CPU), Bil Herd, Bob Russell, and Dave Haynie.

I was lucky enough to work in Building 2 for a couple of years and am happy to have been in Murray Hill at all. It was as magical a place as everyone says. Just being around so many great thinkers made me feel smarter too. I'll certainly miss it. (I wonder if the pjw's xface made of magnets still appears at the top of Stair 8)

The hardest part of climbing the ladder of success is getting through the crowd at the bottom.
