Evan Koblentz of MARCH brings us news that former Apple employee Daniel Kottke will speak at this year’s Vintage Computer Festival East 8.0. Evan writes “Dan was a college buddy of Jobs, went with him to India, built Apple 1 boards in Jobs’ parent’s garage, and worked at corporate Apple for many years.” VCF East will be held the weekend of May 5-6, 2012 at InfoAge/Camp Evans in Wall Township, NJ. The Apple II is always well represented at the event. Also of interest is a Sunday workshop on Apple II maintenance led by Brain Board inventor Mike Willegal. Thomas Kurtz, one of the inventors of BASIC, will speak on Saturday.
