The next two IRATA.ONLINE demo meets are:
Saturday, May 5th 2pm-4pm Central Daylight Time
Sunday, May 6th 10pm-12pm Central Daylight Time
Meet links on the website: http://www.irata.online/
As usual, for now, these are demonstration meets, to show the capabilities of the system, and to excite potential users, content developers, and coders wanting to write terminals for their vintage computing platform.
I hope to see you all there. :)

So, some status updates:


VCF East was a success, with an approximate turn-out of about 50 people in the room, watching the presentation. Video was recorded, and is forthcoming from the VCF people. 


I have been asked to speak at VCF West, the first weekend in August at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA. I will be on after the talk given by Brian Dear (the author of The Friendly Orange Glow, the book about PLATO and its history who literally inspired me to DO THIS in the first place.) It will be a nice book-ended pair of talks, with Brian talking about the past, and me talking about the present and future of PLATO especially in the context of the vintage computing community that would benefit most from it.


I also have been asked to speak at VCF Midwest in Chicago in September.


I have been hosting meets weekly, the next pair of meets will be:


Saturday, June 2nd, 10am-12pm CDT

Sunday, June 3rd, 10am-12pm CDT
