Behind the geekery: Canadian celebrates Commodore anniversary

Yesterday in New York a group of IT veterans applauded dead technology with a party for the 25-year-old Commodore 64, a machine that most of us happily traded in for a better-performing IBM PC. ITAC, however, issued a press release on behalf of its member company Liquid Computing that points out a member of its board, Adam Choweniac, was involved in the Commodore’s development when he worked at Bell Northern Research in 1983. What this has to do with Liquid Computing is anyone’s guess, except that maybe it wants to be as successful as Commodore – a company whose product was eclipsed by all competitors, became cost-ineffective to manufacture and led to bankruptcy 12 years ago. Happy birthday!
