years it just works out on an informal basis.
The 50 years idea came up when Dan and I were discussing what to do for
next year's show t-shirt. We started thinking about milestone
anniversaries and we realized that Spacewar is one such milestone. So
are many others -- 35 years of 8-bit computing, 30 years for the Apple
IIe and C-64, and lots more. We concentrated on Spacewar because it will
make for a cool shirt. That's all.
