Going to California — and the Vintage Computer Festival

November 3rd, 2006 by Benj Edwards

VCF GuyI’m leaving for California today to attend VCF 9.0, or more properly, the ninth iteration of the Vintage Computer Festival. It’s taking place at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California (home of Google and other cool tech companies). As a result of my trip, regular posts will be thin in the coming week or so, but I hope to be reporting on the going-ons at the festival if I get a chance. If nothing else, I should be able to post a full write-up of my Silicon Valley adventure when I get back.

Maybe I’ll see you there. If you spot a weird, squirrelly-looking guy with a handlebar mustache, neon-pink jumpsuit, and a gigantic sombrero swaggering around, you’ll know it’s me.

    Hey Sellam.. I didn’t know you read my blog. 🙂 Well, maybe you don’t. But anyway, I wanted to say that I made it to Mountain View, CA safely after around eight hours on planes. Can’t wait for the festival tomorrow.

    James, if you’re referring to me, then no, I was not that guy. But thanks for sharing the video.
