David Greelish is a Computer Historian, Writer, Podcaster & Speaker. He is also the Founder of the Atlanta Historical Computing Society which participated in the 2012 Atlanta Mini Maker Faire. He has written a book about computer history, The Complete Historically Brewed, and he has organized the Vintage Computer Festival Southeast coming up on April 20-21 in Roswell, Georgia.
I recently interviewed him to highlight the Makers who replicate classic computers, rebuild vintage computers to make them function in new ways, and make USB keys for classic computers. We had a fun conversation exploring the passion, joy, and nostalgia for classic computing.
The questions I ask range from the Apple Pop-Up Museum at the Festival to the creations made by vintage computer buffs.
