I have a suggestion, also probably better for VCF-SE, as the guy lives in
Florida. His name is Gary Webb, he was one of the original designers of the
PCJr system. (He also has the prototype SN#1 of the PCJr motherboard, as
well as the engineering-sized schematics for the PCJr.). After IBM, I
believe he worked for Hayes (or maybe USR?). He told me some great stories
about when the team of engineers were working on the Jr. I think he would
be a good speaker, as well as displaying his artifacts. I’ll email you off
list with his contact information.

Normal Person: Hey, it seems that you know a lot.
Geek: To be honest, it's due to all the surfing I do.
Normal Person: So you go surfing?
Normal Person: But I don't think that has anything to do with knowing a
Geek: I think that's wrong on a fundamental level.
