All of our efforts to contact Jeri Ellsworth haven’t worked out, so we’re devoting a post to this — Jeri, we’d love to have you at Maker Faire, drop us a line! pt AT makezine d0t com.

Jeri remade the 1980’s Commodore 64 8-bit computer called the CommodoreOne – a C64-on-a-card. The video here is her talk at Stanford about the C64 & C-One.

  1. damn Phil, you need a date that bad? lol

    but seriously, she’s something else, like a female Woz sans the beard

    girl knows her stuff

  2. I have to admit, reading her NYT article brought back memories of my own. The Commodore started it all for me. Rock on.

    Cheers Jeri!

  3. When my daughter was growing up, I encouraged her to read stories about successful women. If my daughter were young now, I’d encourage her to read Jeri’s story. It’s a great example of believing in yourself and just going out and doing it.
    If you have young daughters then I would also add that you should teach them about money management and to always be skeptical of anything she hears from a man, including and most especially fathers.
    Scientifically I suppose that qualifies as paradox.

  4. Snap! We’re using Altera Quartus at school at the moment for my digital logic class. The web edition is free by the way.
