Events   Events : Jack Tramiel at Computer History Museum - Dec. 10 !!!
   posted by RobertB on 20-Oct-2007 8:06:23 (6884 reads)
Gigantic surprise! Former CEO of Commodore Business Machines, Jack Tramiel, will be making a rare public appearance!

Yesterday I received a message on the answering machine from Karen Tucker, CMO/VP of Public Programs for the Computer History Museum in Mountain View (San Jose area), California.

Here is part of what she said:

... I thought you might be happy to know that the museum is going to have a celebration of the impact of the Commodore 64 on December 10. It's kind of a 25th anniversary celebration, and Jack Tramiel will speak as well as Steve Wozniak and William C. Lowe, the father of the IBM PC, and Adam Chulaniak (sp?) who was the Amiga guy at Commodore, and we're still settling on the moderator. But I thought that if you are still part of the Fresno Commodore User Group... that you guys might want to make the trip down to Mountain View for this event on December 10.


All day today I've been playing phone tag with Karen in order to get more details and received another message saying that the exact title of that night's program is "The Impact of the Commodore 64: A 25-Year Celebration". More details to come when I find out more.

The Computer History Museum is located at 1401 N.
Shoreline Blvd., Mountain View, California 94043.

The website is www.computerhistory.org

I am so there for this event!

Yeah, awesome! Would like to see a video too. He is the true Commodore front man ruthless but effective. It's a shame Irving Gould pushed him out of his own company. With friends like that....

Afterwards, informal chit-chat and possible autographs

Admission -- for the reception, free to museum members ($65
membership)
for the event, free general admission ($10 donation requested)

Seating capacity -- 400

updating the events' page at
http://www.computerhistory.org/events/ but assures that
the event "is really going to happen... definitely".

Guests to speak/appear (updated) -- Jack Tramiel (pronounced
/tra mel/, Karen tells), former CEO of Commodore Business
Machines

Steve Wozniak of Apple fame

William C. Lowe, father of the IBM PC

C64 DTV

Media recording - photography (no flash), videography, and
audio-taping permitted. Possible webcast from Liquid

Some items are still in flux; when I have further updates, I will
post them.

Met with Dale Luck, Amiga software engineer, yesterday at the
Vintage Computer Festival 10.0. After congratulating him and teasing
him a bit on his recent marriage, I mentioned that Jack Tramiel would
be speaking at the Computer History Museum on Dec. 10. Surprised, he
remarked that he didn't know anything about it. I described the event
to him and the times. I mentioned that Adam Chowaniec would be there,
and he said that knew Adam. Dale was interested in going to the event
and would tell other Amiga engineers, too.

> Robert, have you heard anything about when tickets will be available?

On Nov. 14 I spoke to Valerie, events person at CHM. She said that the event looks as if it's going to be a sell-out (capacity set at 400 with no extra space due to fire marshal restrictions). Ticket pre-registration for sponsors and invitees opens up soon. Regular registration for the general public opens up at the end of the month. Registration details will be at the website -- http://www.computerhistory.org

In another phone call with her Nov. 15, she provided clarification; if you become a Computer History Museum member for $65, you can be put on the pre-registration list for the event.

In an e-mail received last night, Bil Herd, CBM lead engineer in the development of the Commodore 128, has now confirmed that he will attend the event.

Received an e-mail from Dave Haynie today. He has
offered to put my event videos up on his YouTube site. And
so, it seems that I will be mailing him DVD copies after the
show (Merry Christmas, Dave!).
