Commodore 64: For the Love of a Machine

Hey guys!

I'm working on a book called "Commodore 64: For the Love of a Machine" which is a tribute to the Commodore 64, the people who created it, the people who used it, and the people who still use it today. From a scene perspective, there's going to be photos from various events like the X parties, pixel graphics from the likes of Mermaid, Pal and Mirage plus an in-depth interview with Mr.Z.

Most of the content in the book has already been decided upon, but as I will crowdfund it, there's the possibility of more pages. My plan is if lots of sceners support the book, there will be more scene stuff in those extra pages.

My question to you is, what would you like to see on those pages? What I've been thinking about is a special on cracking and I've also been trying to get hold of Crossbow/Crest for an interview (although he seems to have gone into hiding.)

Please let me know if there's anything you'd like to see in the book and also check out the video teaser I released today: http://bit.ly/2mN3dWl.

Releasing a PDF could still get Andreas into serious legal troubles. I'm sure you'll front his legal fees, Groepaz, right?

wait, wait wait...
was Morpheus going to use the actual music notes in the book?
whatever... actually I don't even care - just wondering, but have to agree with Greopaz (which is mega difficult in itself) that IP and copyright BS is something that kills kool initiatives like this one for, way too many times...

Rob Hubbard loaned Morpheus the papers.

Morpheus was putting images of them into the book and planning to sell prints of those images.

Morpheus needed publishing permission from High Technology Publishing.


And yes, I'm aware an image appeared in the Generation 64 book about the Swedish scene. Doesn't grant him the rights to use them again or sell prints.

From what I understand High Technology Publishing offered the chance to use the images in the book for free, on the basis that Morpheus returned the papers to Rob.

There is an exhibition that wants to display the papers, and academics want to study them (now that Rob has an honorary doctorate for his music).
