ANTIC Interview 288 – David Thornburg, Koalapad inventor

David Thornburg, Koalapad inventor
David Thornburg invented the KoalaPad, a touch tablet that was available for the Atari 8-bit computers, Commodore 64, Apple II, and the IBM PC. A version for the TRS-80 Color Computer was also available, sold as the TRS-80 Touch Pad. He is also the author of The KoalaPad Book, which was published in 1984.
This interview took place on May 22, 2017. In it, we discuss George White, the founder of Koala Technologies, whom I previously interviewed.
Teaser quote: “You know how to take things apart. Good for you. But you’ve never built anything in your entire life. You have no idea what it’s like to invent something that has generated livelihood for hundreds of people, and is making a difference in the lives of thousands of people.”

GeekFest Rants Episode 310 – It Comes At Night Review – The World of Avatar – A Concert Story

Today on GeekFest Rants Carlos will Rant about the new movie he saw, It Comes At Night. Is it a great movie? Is it confusing? Is it worth a second viewing? Are the critics right or wrong? You will find out…..maybe. And while talking about second viewings, we’ll list some very good movies that we really don’t want to re-watch.

Then we’ll take a trip to the Pandora, the World of Avatar. This new Disney – Animal Kingdom attraction might just have the best theme park ride ever. As well as very tall skinny blue inhabitants.

Plus, we take a ride back to 1984/85 to re- write a wrong in Carlos’ time traveling timeline…… a missed Hall and Oates concert. This past week we corrected that injustice in nerd 80’s pop music history.
