BIOS has posted two videos of the Sept. 12-13
Vintage Computer Festival East 6.0. The first
is a look at the activities which include an
excerpt of the 8static Chip Tune Concert held
there, a look around the exhibit hall at the
various computers (including Commodore and
Amiga), various attendees trying out Shredz64
(Guitar Hero for the C64), an excerpt from Evan
Koblentz's talk on Computer Development and the
U.S. Army Evans Signal Laboratory, the full
presentation given by Bill Degnan on the
evolution of local computer clubs in the 1970's
and early 1980's, and more. At nearly one hour,
this first video, entitled "Vintage Computer
Festival East 6.0 (2009)", is at

The second video is the complete Sunday
presentation given by David Ahl, editor of
Creative Computing magazine, in which he
humorously relates the Blunders in Personal
Computing of the 1970's and early 1980's. This
almost-one-hour video is at

My thanks to Evan Koblentz, VCF East organizer,
for his hospitality and thanks to all the other
members of MARCH who helped me out and who
provided a C64 system with which I demonstrated
Toni Westbrook's Shredz64 and the PSX64 adapter.
