Events   Events : Andy Finkel to be interviewed for CommVEx v4
   posted by RobertB on 24-Jul-2008 20:19:32 (2828 reads)
Hello, all,

Sorry for the late notice, but it was literally two weeks ago that CBM engineer Bill Herd suggested the idea of a video conference into this year's CommVEx, instead of the usual pre-recorded, yearly CBM Animals video. He has rounded up Andy Finkel, CBM engineer who has worked on the VIC-20, C64, and Amiga as the focus of this conference. Bil said, "I was able to get hold of Andy Finkel who was head of the games group the entire time I was there and went on to do LOTs of Amiga stuff, he literally knows where some of the bodies were buried on the Amiga sw."
Read more...


Well, with a few days to go before CommVEx, everyone is virtually running around to get this done. Details are changing at the each moment. It might be a video conference; it might just be a telephone conference. It all depends on how Bil, Andy, Dave Haynie, and now AmiWest Show Internet radio/video guru, Bill "Tekmage" Bosari can get it all together on their end.

This though is certain - Bil Herd will introduce and be moderator for an interview with Andy Finkel. All we have to do is provide more questions for Andy, or as Bil puts it, "20 questions...".

So if you have a question for Andy (or even Bil), post it here and I will gather them up to present to them.

CommVEx in 2 days!

Hmm, a bit late to post questions for Andy, but I wish we had an updated version of the Amiga Font Editor...

I found an old copy from 1988 and it said last updated by Andy Finkel

Yeah, I agree.

Is there somewhere to download a transcript of the interview?

Did anyone ask him about releasing some of his software, as freely distributable or open source?

Sorry, too late. All questions that were posted at other sites and on mailing lists were asked of him.

Each CommVEx attendee was given a CD containing a .mp3 of the interview (originally a .aiff of over 1 gig but reduced down to around 400 megs for the 1 hour, 40 talk). I asked them to kindly post it somewhere.
