I noticed a few factual errors slipped out during the talk, but otherwise I'm well pleased with it :)

Good talk Andrew.

I like the way you mentioned the business/home computer split in the early 1980s, with the Apple II coming down the middle. This was certainly a real splitting of the market after it's hobby phase, and something not always emphasised enough in computer history IMO.

The picture of the family around a Vic 20 and your mention of the "balancing chequebook" use reminds me of an episode of "Flight of the Conchords" where Bret and Germain are in Murray's office looking at the Band's finances....on a VIC-20! :D Funny!
