BBC Micro 30th Anniversary

A celebration event for the BBC Micro-computer's thirtieth anniversary is being held on the 25th of this month, in Cambridge (where else?) – see the event's website for fuller information.

It'll be great to have not only the co-founders of Acorn Computers Ltd, Hermann Hauser and Chris Curry, but also Sophie Wilson and Pref Steve "Furby" Furber there, as well as Eben Upton of Raspberry Pi fame.

Thus the thirty year span from the original Acorn Proton to today's ARM-based hardware platform will be covered at this very special event.

I don't expect to be able to go myself, as the tickets are too expensive for me to be able to justify, but wish it well from a distance instead!
