Retro Innovations— Jim Brain — Muscatine, IA

Computers are powerful, easy to use, pervasive, and here to stay. We consider them a necessary component of our lives, and some of us live our lives around them. But, do you ever consider the machine itself? It’s doubtful you give much thought to the actual system. It’s a means to an end, something needed to run the latest game, write the next novel, or surf the next web page. It wasn’t always like that. There was a time, in the beginning of the information age, where computers had souls, and people defended their honor. Programs were made to fit the machine, not the other way around. These systems outlived their time period, finding themselves in an era that threatened to pass them by. RETRO Innovations builds the bridges that span the eras. We augment classic computers with today’s technology, blazing a seamless path from yesterday to today.

Corsham Tech — Bob Applegate — Medford, NJ

We are a commercial supplier of KIM-1 add-on boards, SS-50 boards, and SS-50 reproductions using both the 6800 and 6809 processors.  We remember when those machines were common and have added new products to both support the vintage computer community as well as add products that we want to have for OUR vintage systems.  Exhibits will include several KIM-1s (not reproductions) as well as SS-50 reproduction systems and boards.  — Flint Barrow — Atlanta, GA transforms online conversation by emphasizing the importance that every comment is heard and valued through comment filters and conversational analytics that empower audiences to understand one another.
