I have exhibited at VCF East since the first one (VCF 3) in N.J. I always have a great time and I really admire the job Evan and the team did to put this together. The speakers were top notch. I got to each dinner with Ted Nelson and we chatted about computer history and what he was up to today. I'll follow up with some of those details, but for now, here are more photos:
