Miscellaneous News   Miscellaneous News : Recursion Computer Fair Sat 15 Feb, Stratford-upon-Avon. Exhibitors' List Update
   posted by yoodoo2 on 20-Jan-2014 20:33:50 (2061 reads)
The Recursion 2014 Computer Fair takes place at King Edward Vi School, Stratford-upon-Avon on Saturday 15 February. Free admission to all. Doors open at 11.00

The list of exhibitors has been updated: check out here and here for details.

Read more ---->


Simon Goodwin (Codemaster, HiSoft BASIC, Amiga DE and a lot, lot more) has very kindly agreed to deliver the opening keynote speech and will be available to chat about all things Amiga and beyond.

As well as a range of stands and exhibits for any retro fan, there will be X1000, SAMs, MorphOS, AROS, AEROS and Classic Amigas all together for everyone to try out and argue over ;)

Pick up a bargain - a number of Classic machines will be available on a first come first served basis and there might just be a BlizzardPPC equipped A1200 up for sale too.

Lots for all the family to do - bring the wife and kids along. Loads of Raspberry Pi and robotics kits will be available at discount prices from our trade partners and the historic Shakespeare's School will be open for tours.

More information at the Recursion Website

I'll be coming over from Copenhagen for this (well, and for enjoying a weekend in Stratford-upon-Avon together with my wife ).

So whoever else decides to go - see you there!

Best regards,

Niels

It's a bit weird for us to see current operating systems in the retro section :-/ (on their website)

@elwood

For us it might not be retro, but surely for the rest of the planet (even though the systems are still alive and updated).

It will never become main stream again, and thinking otherwise is rather mad I think.
It's better to be part of the show (regardless of the section being retro or not) then not at all IMO.

Also remember that retro isn't necessarily obsolete.

There are retro trends in fashion, furniture design, architechture etc. all the time, which are often quite popular. And sometimes people start using something because of such a trend and end up wanting to stick with it.

Best regards,

Niels

@Elwood

totally agree.

As soon as Timberwolf, LibreOffice and Gallium come out, a massive advertising campain should be made.

@Elwood and AmigaBlitter

Seriously? Firstly the Amiga folk are in the "Retro and Community" section (last word of that is important!)

Secondly, if you look at the rest of the fair, it's far more up-to-date and relevant to a modern audience than we (=all Amiga flavours) will ever be again.

Thirdly, it will be interesting to see how many Amigans show up - a central location, with plenty of other stuff to see and do (and a decent tourist town for the rest of the family to visit). Niels is making an effort to come across from Denmark. I wonder how many "local" Amigans will be there...?

I look forward to seeing you all on 15 Feb - I might look a little stressed as I organise the rest of the show and make sure the power supply copes :)

Me too ... and I was thinking, one of the best ways to show the general audience that AmigaOS is not (just) about retro is if a bunch of us are present and actively using and talking about it.

I still remember the interest awoken at the Colmar fair - I'm sure you do as well, Elwood .

Best regards,

Niels
