Univac – Stuck in Customs


Meet me at OpenCamp!

The Powers That Be talked me into speaking at OpenCa.mp, which is Aug 27-29 in Dallas. Who is OpenCamp for? As the website says, “Webmasters and web developers, bloggers, podcasters, social media enthusiasts and anyone interested in web content creation!” This is put together by the same people who did WordCamp Dallas and DrupalCamp Dallas. This should be one of the biggest events for bloggers this year – so I hope you can come out!

Cali Lewis, one of the organizers, recently mentioned OpenCamp in her recent Geekbrief video. You can get a full list of the speakers on the OpenCamp Page… along with me will be Chris Pirillo, John P, and many others.  I’ve heard Leo Laporte may even join the festivities… that would be a lot of fun to hang out with him again!

Right after OpenCamp, I’ll be heading out to Burning Man in the middle of the Black Rock Desert. That will be a wild time!

Exclusive! Video to be released on Abduzeedo!

The crew over at Abduzeedo.com grabbed the Exclusive of my new video release on Friday. It’s a bit different than anything I have ever done… I hope you like it. I’ll link over there on Friday so you can be among the first to see it.

New Prints Available

If you go over to the Prints area of the site, you can get links to all the latest prints to be released. I only release about 1% or 2% of the works as Limited Edition Numbered Prints. One of them is featured today over in a new video over at OneMansBlog.com. That print should come available soon.

Daily Photo – Univac

I’m such a nerd and I love this computer.

My background is computer science and math, so I’ve always been into computers. This UNIVAC was just hitting its stride around the time I was born, and Moore’s Law was kind enough to keep the doublings at a manageable rate so it wasn’t a whole lot faster when I got my own first computer! I think I started with the Timex Sinclair 99 before getting into the C-64, then a whole host of Amigas before getting into the world of PCs (see these old vintage ads of computer stuff I tweeted about yesterday). Anyway, I’ll try not to geek out too much here!

This photo was taken at the new Air and Space Museum in DC. There is an area in the back with all the rockets that also had the computers that were used alongside them at mission control. So, if you have any geek in you at all, I really recommend it.
