Vintage Computer Festival West XI happens in five months from now, but it’s definitely not too soon to register your exhibits! We opened registration yesterday and three people immediately signed up. Check out the list.
Our museum in Wall, New Jersey (based at the InfoAge Science Center) closed last month and will re-open in time to host the Vintage Computer Festival East April 15-17. The new facility will have more than 2x the exhibition space of our old facility, along with a small classroom/workshop area and a new double-wide doorway so we can display larger systems such as our UNIVAC 1219-B. We’re also putting in all new furniture and all new signs. It’s going to be MUCH nicer than the old museum.
Check out the new “Forum” link in our menu.
A collector, Erik Klein, founded the Vintage Computer Forum in the early 2000s at his personal site. It became the largest discussion site for the vintage computing hobby.
As the next step in its evolution, the Forum joined the Federation, and Erik joined our board. Erik and forumites: welcome to our home!
Vintage Computer Festival West is making a triumphant return this summer! The show will be August 6-7 at the Computer History Museum, in Mountain View, California. Click here for details.
We opened registration for VCF East XI exhibits a few days ago, and there are already eight people signed up! Have a look at what’s registered so far and considering doing your own…
VCF East talks are going online first. So far we posted video from VCF East 6.0 (2009) and VCF East 9.1 (2014) — the years don’t always add up because we skipped a year here and there.
We’re adding video from other years during the next few days/weeks. Keep checking the link to our YouTube channel!
Several people asked to see a bigger version of our logo. Here it is! Click it for a very big version. May the Force be …. errr, wrong cultural reference. 😉
We bought vcfed.com and vcfed.org. Both of these forward to the real site here at vintagecomputerfederation.org. We also made the submenus indented when you press the “menu” button on mobile browsers. These changes should make things a lot easier for everyone!
Web sites don’t build themselves. Several people deserve credit for making vintagecomputerfederation.org. Virtual applause is due for logo artist Dan Roganti, designer Darren Kerr (and manager Steven Toth) of Kernel Labs, and programmer Bill Degnan. All donated their time.
