Computer history on video

Post by admin »

A sysop's diary: I streamed a fascinating documentary over the weekend. "8-bit Generation" is currently available on Kanopy. This one has actual video of Jack Tramiel reminiscing about the U.S. army, calculators, MOS Tech and the early days of Commodore. Steve Wozniak and Chuck Peddle provide a lot of background and author ("The Home Computer Wars") Michael Tomczyk describes the aftermath of a "Jack Attack" - everyone at Commodore gets fired.

"8-bit Generation" is not yet available in the Play Store, but Google does have a related title, "The Commodore Story".
