ACMS - Show and Tell

The ACMS is pleased to start a new tradition an interactive recurring event - Show and Tell.

Members and guests are welcomed to come down, visit the museum, bring along their most prized possession and present a 5 to 10 minute talk on what it is, the technology, manufacturer history, and why it means so much to you. You may even just want the spotlight to talk about your history or achievements in The Australian IT landscape.

You can be as formal or informal as you please, detailed, superficial or just tell your story. We have a VGA projector ready in the theatrette, lectern, loud speaker and desks for setup.

Don’t be shy - give everyone here an educative experience through your knowledge of your most favoured, treasured possessions. Afterward, everyone can have a chat and interact with your item if you choose to allow it.

If you wish to be involved and give your own micro ted talk experience, pop in some details below and get people excited in your own slice of tech heaven.

FIRST Event - Saturday the 26th of August From 11am

I’ll definitely be there!

I’d also like to record everyone’s presentations for YouTube, just let me know beforehand if you don’t want to be recorded.

I’ll be there tomorrow with something interesting. @paran01d Adrian tells me you have an EPROM programmer for 2764 or 2732 EPROMs? I have a friend who will come to Croydon tomorrow if we can source one for him to dump some BIOS with. If you are coming in, would it be possible to use it? :slight_smile:

I will be in and ill make sure to bring it and of course your welcome to use it. Sadly I can only stay for a few hours, but ill leave it and my show and tell around for the week for others to play with.

Cheers Mike. Madeleine just said she was bringing one also, but it’d be good to have a backup. I’ll leave my show and tell there for a week or so too, I think. Good idea!
