I registered on PC World's site as MattMik, and unfortunately, that's
all that has ever shown up in the byline. PC World's servers have been
going crazy recently, and they are switching to a new blogging tool,
so maybe that will change the bylines.
I think I have written a few things about computer history before, but
nothing big comes to mind. I would be interested, though, and PC World
gives me freedom to write about pretty much anything I want. I did
cover the Trenton Computer Festival. You can read my post at
I still feel bad that I though Evan Koblentz was someone else. I'll
have to write an article specifically about MARCH just to make up for
it. The Vintage Computer Festival sounds pretty interesting!
Benj Edwards from vintagecomputing.com is actually going to let me
write an article for his site about my search for CHIP-8 information,
but it's been very hard to try to locate people in Oaxaca, Mexico who
haven't been heard from since 1994 (Tom Swan).

actual name in the byline rather than a handle would make this easier,
although perhaps the PC World search is just brain dead.) Do you write
about computer history?
