TMO Background Mode Interview with Computer Historian and Author David Greelish


| The Mac Observer's Background Mode Podcast

David Greelish is an author, podcaster and personal computer historian. Back when he was in college in the mid-1980s, he got a job in one of the early computer stores that was also an Apple dealer. They sold all kinds of PCs, but David fell in love with the Mac. While he couldn’t afford one, his quest continued until he was able to acquire a used Lisa (that ran Mac software). Like many of us, he fell in love with the early computer movement, and that started his obsession with computer history. He’s the founder of the Historical Computer Society, the Atlanta Historical Computing Society, and was Cofounder/Director of the first Vintage Computer Festival S.E. His interviews with industry luminaries are legendary. Take a walk down computer memory lane with me and David.

    If you enjoy this, the British Computer Society has a very active Specialist Group called the Computer Conservation Society – their Journal is called Resurrection – this goes way back to the dawn of computing – here’s their website – I’m a member of the BCS btw.
    There is also a museum adjacent to Bletchley Park, U.K. where Enigma and Lorenz were broken with the help of early electromechanical machines. The CCS help to run The National Museum of Computing, TNMoC .

    So if you are interested in the history of computing, these are must visit places, enjoy 🙂
