ALT09 is on the way!
Compos for Alternative Party 2009 are now at our new site altparty.org/2009/competitions
Alternative Party 2009 bring two very special guests to Finland this year, the ARM designer Sophie Wilson and electronics specialist Jeri Ellsworth.
At Alternative Party, Sophie Wilson will tell about her early days at Acorn Computers. She designed the ARM and its successors became the most popular processors in many kinds of low-power computer systems from Internet routers to music players, PDAs and mobile phones. Party visitors will have the chance to see the prototype for the Acorn System One, the very earliest of the Acorns.
Jeri Ellsworth is a self-taught computer chip designer. In 2004, she designed Commodore 30-in-1 Direct to TV - a C64 emulator built into a joystick, capable of playing 30 famous C64 titles - and expandable to a full Commodore 64 computer system. At the Alternative Party Jeri Ellsworth is going to do an episode for her internet reality tv: The Fat Man and Circuit Girl. The episode will be broadcast on live.
