The Golden Age of the Home Computer

On September 11, 2013, I did a presentation at Nerd Nite Austin on The Golden Age of the Home Computer.  It features many machines from my personal collection.  I didn't want to take my whole collection with me, so I tried to think of a sensible way to limit it.  I came up with the a 30th anniversary concept, and so only took those machines which would have been available to purchase in 1983.  That turned out to be way more than I expected - 19 machines, which is over half of my collection.  As I did more research for the presentation, I found that 1983 was a very significant year in the history of home computers.  I hope you enjoy the video!
