Mike is currently working on a book who aims to uncover the story behind a rare Danish built and designed series of computers called the "ICL Comet", and yes ... you might wonder, "ICL is not a danish company" - and you would be right, the machine was sold by ICL, but build, designed and produced by different small Danish Companies.

I have spent three years collecting sources for this books, and the project just exploded in scale and that in itself has become a great story, which I am going to tell you about.

If you like old computers you most definitely want to attend to my talk!
