Isn't there already 3 other threads here on AA regarding this event?

 

There's a thread in every Atari Console and Computer forum on the board so no Atari fan would miss the info.

"Friggin' awesome" is what I'd categorize it as. Myself and a couple of others grabbed drinks with Dan Kramer after the event. And there were plenty of other Atari* alumni present as well, such as Jerry Jessop.

 

*Atari [Consumer] Inc. and Atari Coin/Games/Tengen/Midway alumni. I don't think anyone from Tramiel's Atari Corp identified themselves as such which kinda is a shame since the Lynx, Jaguar, XEGS, and STs were all represented there as well.

Damnit! I wish I knew any of you guys, I'd have loved to get some drinks with you. Sadly I'm pretty introverted, so don't bother chatting anyone up really. Drat. Still, what a great time it was. Pictures soonish :)

Were you the guy with the DSLR taking pics?

 

My friend mentioned he saw someone with a Lytro there taking pics as well. And that's also not counting the guy wearing Google Glass there.

Nope, though wish I had a DSLR since my gf (who took the pictures) is a fine arts graduate and great photographer; sadly it was cell phone pics only :) I had the OUYA t-shirt on. Here's a couple of pics for now, more to come.

You got a good profile shot of my son playing the Jaguar, directly behind Dan Kramer's right shoulder. :)

OK, I'm either having a blonde moment or not enough sleep.. what the heck is that last picture of? Obviously some frankenboard of 80s and modern vintage, but I'm stumped.
