Come  join us for a celebration of the Amiga, its groundbreaking  accomplishments and its rich history at the Computer History Museum - Link: Amiga 30th Anniversary

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 %&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!8220;Viva Amiga%&$#?@!%&$#?@!%&$#?@!8221; documentary video presented by "Viva  Amiga" producer Zack Weddington.

Thanks for the feedback. I will check with the organizers. I would have thought Canada, Australia and NZ etc would be OK. Watch this space.

US and EU is pretty narrow if you ask me. You exclude a lot of potential backers.

I hope my fellow Amigans are enjoying the relevance of "Kickstart" and "Amiga".

I'm not sure I'd want him there, as far as I know he's very outspoken regarding the continuing modern Amiga - I can't stand people who look down on passion just because they need to keep in check there own reality... I think that visualisation affects quite a few people actually but anyway ;-)

I don't think Haynie worked on the A1000. He got hired later. But, maybe he's a "plus more". :-)

@All

Getting the shipping wrong can sink a kickstarter compaign.  We decided to launch with US and EU shipping and add the other countries later.  We will post updates here and on the kickstarter when we get shipping worked out for the other places.  

Thanks for the support and hang tight!

Cheers,
Bill "tekmage" Borsari

I see Dale Luck is keeper of the Holy Grail. Can't think of anyone better to take care of it after we lost Jay.
