Micro Men

A brief departure from virtualisation today.

The BBC recently broadcast a docu-drama about the early rivalries between Acorn Computers and Sinclair. Given my long associated history with Acorn, having learnt BASIC on a BBC B, owning several different Acorn systems over the years and even working for them many years later, it was great to see how it all started, especially having met many of the characters portrayed (although not Sir Clive!)

I can certainly thank Acorn for planting the seed of my interest in computing.
For those who yearn a bit of 80’s nostalgia at the era of birth of the home computer, I highly recommend you watch it on BBC iPlayer
