Heading South

It’s feeling like a typical spring in the Boston area. At least it’s not as bad as last year, by quite a lot (thank goodness!), but there’s still the usual random weather that ranges from “sort of springtime” to “down right awful” on a random schedule, although it generally leans towards a smorgasbord of hard to take all the way into May or even June. There’s actually snow in the forecast. But enough whining!

I’m very happy to say I’m getting a break from it this weekend and heading down to the Vintage Computing Festival Southeast 4.0 being held at the Computer Museum of American in Roswell, Georgia which is just north of Atlanta. This is actually my third visit there.

I went down two years ago to visit and give this presentation.
Hopper, M.E. (2014, April). Computer museums: Here and there, now and then [Presentation]. Vintage Computing Festival Southeast 2.0, Computer Museum of America, Roswell, GA.

I also just had a great visit there in February, and given all the exciting news I heard then, I know it’s bound to be another exciting visit this time.

While I’m there, I’ll also be exhibiting my New Computer Museum: 3D Edition and giving a related talk entitled Virtual Computer Museums: How to Visit, Exhibit and DIY. All in all, I’m really looking forward to the trip as well as sharing stories about it when I return. Please stay tuned…
