That's a good analogy. It sums up what can be the dual objectives for
these events. I imagine it's hard to juggle when you want to do both.
Give hobbiests a chance to interact and swap stories face to face, yet

mobile phones and the underline technologies came from.
Now and again in a very loose and general sense some of us in New Zealand
have mused about a New Zealand Vintage Computer festival. These comments
and points of view are of interest to me.
