Another big update!!! We're adding a Saturday dinner speaker: legendary computer designer Wes Clark. A very limited number of tickets will be available for this dinner (Saturday afternoon at the show only).

Online ticketing for the rest of the show will be available in the next week or two.

Wow, things were still being set up this evening but there are a LOT of really cool systems already! Are there nine PDP-8s?

It was an excellent show and I'm sure everyone had a great time.

Great job, Evan and the rest of the hard-working folks at MARCH!
