Free 2 public, Sunnyvale Atari Party 6/14 w/Al Alcorn & Dan Kramer

Recommended Posts

Heads up Atari 8-bit Fans!



Former Atari employees Al Alcorn and Dan Kramer will be speaking at this year's "Atari Party" which will be held on Saturday June 14th in Atari's old stomping grounds of Sunnyvale California. The event is free to the public at the Sunnyvale Public Library.



I've mentioned previously in other threads that Al Alcorn needs no introduction but for those who don't know, he was Atari employee #3 and the engineer who built Pong for Nolan Bushnell. He also worked on the 2600, the Cosmos, and plenty of other projects. He's briefly featured in the Steve Jobs bio film Jobs; he's the Atari manager who tells Steve Jobs he's an a$$hole. Alcorn later went on to become an Apple Fellow.



If you are unfamiliar with Dan "The TrakBall Man" Kramer, he created the TrakBalls for both the 2600 and 5200 amongst many other projects back at Atari Inc. [the 2800, remote control joysticks, the Cosmos, etc].



There will be plenty of Atari 8-bit computer hardware present, as well as 16-bit STs, Atari arcade machines, and the various Atari game systems [as well as modern consoles, and PCs emulating classic Atari titles].



Bill Kendrick is looking for volunteers, especially people willing to bring hardware.



Here's a link to the official website:
