2013 Cartoon Art Museum Fundraiser: #NeXTEVNT

Looking Back at NeXTSTEP, meeting old friends and making new ones

The Cartoon Art Museum (CAM), the only institution in the western United States dedicated to all forms of cartoons and comics, presents the second annual #NeXTEVNT fundraiser on Monday, June 10, 2013. 

Hosted by longtime Objective-C hacker, Pixarian, and CAM board member (in order of seniority: 24 yrs, 20 yrs, 11 yrs) Dr. Michael Johnson, this lively evening will feature a number of special guests from back in the day, including former solidThinking developer and current VP of Tools at Pixar Guido Quaroni, ur-NeXTSTEP developer Andy Stone, and several others too shy to let us give out their names (some of whom might work at a local fruit company).

There will be a bunch of NeXTStations running NeXTSTEP 3.3 or OpenStep 4.2 (including a rare HP workstation) along with lots of third-party software from back in the day as well as the folks who wrote it. We've also heard rumors that there may be a VMware version of NeXTSTEP 3.3 and OpenStep 4.2, but we can neither confirm nor deny.

Other highlights include:

  • musical entertainment courtesy of our friend James Dempsey.
  • Chris Coleman from 20 Wines will be pouring awesome California vintages (in his signature ammo cases, of course).
  • our neighbors at Kokkari will once again be providing awesome Mediterranean fare.
  • a local SF food truck to serve up added yumminess, hearty beer from Thirsty Bear, some choice tequila and whiskey options, and a variety of non-alchoholic drinks.
  • the museum's current exhibitions, including The Art of Sam Kieth (of Sandman and The MAXX fame) and Superman: A 75th Anniversary Celebration.

There are even rumors of a raffle/auction with some interesting NeXT & Pixar items, but this is entirely unconfirmed at this time. If there was such a thing, it would only be available to ticket holders...

Tickets & Event Info

Tickets are priced at $200 each, and include entry to the event, plus a personalized NeXTEVNT ID badge. The ID badge can help identify you amongst other NeXTEVNT guests, and will include your Twitter username (or first name if you prefer), company name, and a small sentence describing a funny story about your experience with NeXT or fun fact.

This event starts at 4 p.m. to allow you plenty of time to enjoy the museum and chill before eating, drinking, and listening to our speakers. We want this event to be about hanging out and chatting, which is what we heard that folks most enjoyed last year.
