Growing the 8 Bit Generation Premiere (with Chuck Peddle!)
« on: January 07, 2020, 03:20:15 AM »
     Back in 2016 the premiere of the movie, "Growing the 8 Bit Generation", was held at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California.  After the movie premiered, CBM engineer Bil Herd and the film's producer Bruno Grampa were interviewed on-stage.  And at the end, 6502 engineer Chuck Peddle had surprise questions and comments from his seat in the audience!   You can see it at

Heh, at the 2019 Downtown L.A. Maker Faire, several attendees were asking where was an Apple II on our classic computers' exhibit.  I had to tell them that I would bring an Apple IIGS for the 2020 DTLA Maker Faire.  (Of course, the Commodore 8-bits and the Amigas have priority on the tables.)  :)

Happy New Year!
