The press has gotten wind of the event --

@RobertB

Great to see the prototypes listed, and Mandal mentioned, I hope it works like the old magazine articles announced.

I take it CasAR is teh modern version of the laser tracking table used in the movie, Short Circuit? Or is it a version where you use a video projector, pointing downwards, instead of horizontal, which would be great for intergrated DnD and Warhammer 40k gaming?

I suspect there isnt time enough to do one of the other firsts that Amigas were known for to the techs.

Skyline BBS.

Networked graphical mouse driven remote interfaces. Before Mosaic and the Web?

I keep thinking that design wouldve been so intresting, where the terminal, GUI that the user observes, is seperate from the work the machine does, but if the terminal can do pixel level coloured graphics, why would we have a GUI? Throw in Datatype to IFF, and IFF to REXX, and REXX to Escape Code, full terminal support included split page, screen operations, and so on and Simple HTML and OpenURL.library gives us a Terminal thats more graphical than Lynx on GUI?

Amiga Classics are historical.

Amiga Philosophy is futuristic.

But the future often doesnt come to past the way we hope.

@RobertB

Given there are SO many articles appearing now, I suggest people just use:

Amiga 30 search in google news

If anyone finds specific content within the realm of these articles interesting and wishes to mention it, please give links so others can enjoy them as well.

@number6

I guess NBC would be considered mainstream

@scabit

It would be no big deal to call the local NBC affiliate, send the link and invite them. Offering a free meal on a slow Saturday can work.

And yes, NBC wouldn't even have to drive down from S.F. They have a local affiliate (KNTV) just down the road.
