The Vintage Computer Festival
The VCF is an event celebrating
old computers and their place in history, held at the Computer
History Museum in Mountain View California. Just South of San
Francisco, it is not only a great event to attend, but allows for some fun
touristy stuff in and around Silicon Valley. Wooo-whoo!
The VCF is run by Sellam Ismail, a collector who has managed to turn
his interest in antique computers into a thriving business. His business, VintageTech,
is involved in patent litigation research and film consulting, among other
I love the VCF. Every time I have been has been a memorable and
enjoyable time, but the most fun I have is as an exhibitor. I love putting
together a display, and enjoy being able to show off my collection and
talk with interested attendees.
