The last stretch goal has fallen
Less than a day to go and the finish line for this campaign is in sight. It feels right to be ending the Kickstarter in July, which is the month the Amiga debuted to the world 30 years ago. Who would have thought Commodore’s computers would remain so endlessly fascinating after all this time?
Today the project blew past the final stretch goal, meaning everyone who has backed a physical copy of the book will receive a poster of the Agnus chip and personalized Commodore business card replicas. Thanks to all the new backers and to backers like Randy Epstein who upped his pledge just to add a little momentum to the campaign. He’s not only the top backer, but he promoted the project through IRC channels. Incredible!
Enthusiasm like that deserves a reward, so here is a little teaser. Dale Luck has revealed that he has, among other things in his collection, the fabled Ranger prototype that the original team on the West Coast started developing before they left Commodore. And here is a saucy photo of that prototype.
More details will of course be coming in the actual book. Be sure to check out the Amiga 30th Anniversary Event at the Computer History Museum. This exciting event will take place July 25 & 26th in Mountainview, California: http://amiga30.com
