On Oct 11, 2003 we celebrated the 30th birthday of the Xerox Alto computer system as part of the Vintage Computer Festival held at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California. This special panel was held followed by a birthday cake cutting ceremony. Thanks to DigiBarn videomaker Allan Lundell and his partner Sun McNamee and yours truly DigiBarn curator Bruce Damer, we have great video and audio of this historic event. We also have a great set of images of the panel below.
