Beeb@30

Written by Aidy.

If there's one thing I love it's wallowing in nostalgia and learning about the pioneers of the industry of which I'm proud to be a part of and this Sunday I got to do both of those things. I was lucky enough to attend Beeb@30 which celebrated 30 years of the BBC Micro and the Computer Literacy project. Hosted at the ARM offices in Cambridge by The Museum of Computing History, this was a real treat, especially since I grew up with both the BBC Micro and the Acorn Electron. The fastest thing I can still type to this day is word 'chain' thanks to the people that were in that room. I even got my photo taken with Chris Curry, the man who's cinematic counterpart uttered the words "We could've been the British IBM" in Micro Men. Great days!!
