Amiga 30th Anniversary in California

---------- Original message ----------
From: Trevor Dickinson
Date: March 19, 2015


Come join us for a celebration of the Amiga, its groundbreaking
accomplishments and its rich history at the Computer History Museum -
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...-in-california

On July 23rd, 1985, the world was introduced to the Commodore Amiga
Computer. This year marks the 30th Anniversary of the Amiga's launch and
to commemorate that seminal event in computer history we are throwing a
party.

Join us on Saturday, July 25th, in a celebration of the amazing Amiga. Our
party will feature an evening of epic Amiga Fun. The event will be a
banquet with feature speakers, panel discussion, historical artifact
displays, and more.

The main event for the banquet will be a panel discussion of original
Amiga developers including:

Dale Luck
Carl Sassenrath
Dave Needle
RJ Mical
Plus more

The panel topics will cover start-up life in 1985, building the Amiga
1000, and how the Amiga influenced technology over the last 30 years.

Additional speakers will include:

* Trevor Dickinson, co-founder of A-EON Technology, makers of next
generation Amiga systems and software.

* Colin Proudfoot, Former Managing Director of Commodore Business Machines
(UK)

* Mike Battilana, Founder CEO of Cloanto, maker of the Amiga Forever
emulation software.

We will also have video presentations including a special extended clip
from the upcoming "Viva Amiga" documentary video [produced] by "Viva
Amiga" producer Zack Weddington.

Ironic that not one person celebrated the Commodore 64's 30th anniversary in 2012.

I just confirmed to Bill Borsari (one of the organizers and long-term supporters of all American Amiga shows) that I'll send a few of my new products for this event. Since there's a lot in the pipe and some things got delayed because of a China supplier having trouble getting back on track after Chinese New Year, I can't promise what will be shown, but the list of cards I'm working on can be gathered from a few threads on this and other forums:

ACA500plus
ACA1221
ACA1221ec

...and maybe some more ;-)

Six days to go.
I pledge my $10 even though I cant be there,

I hope this hits the target soon - I know its just a matter of publicity- and still many folks dont even know this event is happening, so do spread the word.
