Vintage Computer Festival 2000
The most widely known events of the last few years in the Commodore world have been the Vintage Computer Festival in Silicon Valley, the Lansing (MI) Expo and the Chicago Expo.
The Festival on September 30 and October 1 featured exhibits, demos, products for sale and nerd heaven with early computers large and small on display. Robert Bernardo, who has attended and reported on all of these events, was there and captured the action and the faces on film.
