I can't recall if I
sent this message already, so I apologize if it's a re-run.
Some of you may be
wondering how we're advertising the VCF East 5.0.
I obtained email
addresses for every professional and student chapter of the IEEE, every
professional and student chapter of the ACM, every college computer science
department, and every computer club / user group that I could find, in the
states of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, New
Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and also D.C. .... then
I (nicely) spammed them all. :-)
guest speakers focus on BIG iron, so I also contacted the mailing
lists of ASTC (Association of Science & Technology Centers) and
SHOT-SIGCIS (Society for the History of Technology's Special Interest Group in
Computers, Information, and Society) -- I'm a member of both
And of course,
I've been posting on cctalk and the vcforum.
Sellam will (soon) send ping his "VCF Gazzette" mailing
Last but not
least, our flyer still resides at www.midatlanticretro.org/vcfe5flyer.pdf
... PLEASE print it out and/or email the link (and/or as an attached file) to
anyone you know who might be interested!!!! Don't be shy.
successful the VCF East is, the more money MARCH gets, the better museum and
user community we'll create together.
