Hello all, I am forming a new retro- and vintage computing user group in the Seattle area. I expect the user base will centre somewhere north of the city proper because there is already at least one group in Tacoma that people in the south end can attend.

I had originally planned to focus on one or two types of old micro (Commodores and Apples), but so few Commodore people in town have any interest in meeting face-to-face that I have broadened the focus to include any sort of computing (hardware, software, or development efforts for same) older than roughly 15-20 years. That said, I really doubt there will be much interest in Windows 95.

While several candidate locations have been lined up, no specific meeting place or time has yet been set; I figured it would make sense to find out what parts of town people will be coming from before trying to fix that in stone.

Lastly, the all-important detail of the new group’s name: I am torn between

North End Retrocomputing Devotees’ Society (N.E.R.D.S.)
Retrocomputing Enthusiasts’ Society Of Northern Seattle (R.E.S.O.N.S., the particles reality is fictionally made of — dog Latin for “thingies”)

Don’t worry if these annoy you, they and any other suggestions made will be put to a vote when we get a proper meeting together.
