Back on July 10, I posted asking for guest speakers for the upcoming 
Vintage Computer Festival East 6.0 (Sept. 12-13, InfoAge Science Center, 
Wall, New Jersey, USA) ..... good news, we scored a great keynote 
speaker.  Ted Hurewitz worked on Bizmac (tube computer) and the 501 
(transistor computer) for RCA at its Camden, N.J. facility in the 
1950s.  His lecture is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. on Sat. the 12th.

Also: the event flyer is at http://www.snarc.net/vcfe6.pdf ..... I would 
sincerely appreciate any help from SIGCIS members to spread the word.  
Please share the link and/or print the flyer and distribute it as widely 
as possible.  Thanks in advance!!
