Introduction

"Organizer" may be too strong a word.

How long have you been interested in Forth?

Since about 1978. In those days, many vendors were selling clones of FIG-Forth for various personal computers with very little value-added beyond the boot loader and a little hardware interface. I started off with one such on my 6502-based Ohio Scientific C1P. http://doublebit.com/archives/software/challenger1p/

What Kevin Appert is saying about this Meetup Group

Wonderful people, great speakers, lots of Forth.

    Thanks Kevin ... FIG had much to do with my successful and now lapsed career in computer science!

    Thanks for the greeting!

    I went to the last meeting at Standford, and it was great! Loved the presentation about Arduino.
    I had used Forth quite a few years ago, and I just got a 'respark' of interest when I'm thinking of
    a few projects that I have in mind, and I think that Forth might be the way to go. I'm a LOT rusty on it, so it's being a bit of a refresher for me. Thanks again for the greeting.
