Calling all original Apple-1 owners....

At VCF West (2019) this year on August 3rd and 4th at the Computer Histoy Museum in MountainView California we are trying to get as many original  Apple-1 in the same room as possible.  We are also thinking of a mass power on for those who want to the opportunity and also a discussion panel on Apple-1 stories where you can discuss the history of you particular system if you feel so inclined.  We will also respect your privacy if you simply want to display the board in a glass case which we will supply.

 

Please contact me at to coordinate.   We will work with the CHM and the local police to provide security for this event.  

 

I will also reach out directly to many of you via email in the next coming weeks, but just in case I missed someone I’m posting here.   

 

Thanks,

Cheers,

Corey

Sounds like fun. I’m coming

Sounds like fun. I’m coming to the Bay Area in early June for WWDC, so will have to check my schedule and talk to my wife to see if I can come back again in August. I think we may be in Europe at that time for summer vacation but are plans aren’t finalized yet.

If I can participate then I’d only be able to bring the board and would need to borrow all the accessories to operate it.

We will make sure we have keyboards, power supplies and monitors.   Most people who would be traveling from out of town/country will only bring their boards.   I will start shipping apple-1 compatible keyboards and supplies in July to the Bay Area since I don’t plan on bringing my wood case either.

Looking forward to that event

Looking forward to that event.

How about having a table for troubleshooting Apple-1 replicas, for people building their own or have built ones and are not working 100%... ?

I’d love to do that, but I’m

I’d love to do that, but I’m actually working the show, most of the time I’ll be at the front desk or running around when I’m not participating in the original A-1 events.  

 

For VCF East in the next few weeks we may be able to do some of that during the Friday classes day, I’ll talk to Evan Koblentz to see how much I’m needed on the Friday afternoon, no promises yet.  I’ll have an assistant, Jeff Jonas, to help with my VCF duties at east this year so it may be easier on the Friday since I broke my shoulder blade 7 weeks ago and can’t do any lifting.   I know that’s the opposite coast, but logistically I’ll be a person and a half with Jeff helping me so I may be able to put a few hours in troubleshooting. 

 

Stay tuned I’ll call Evan this afternoon and see if it’s a possibility.  

Cheers,

Corey

OK, checked with Evan.  Friday class schedules are  full at VCF East.    What I can do is find a VCF workshop day where I know I can attend, they just had one but I was out of town.  They happen about every month.

 

Cheers,

Corey
