Quote about the people who have been interviewed:

"So far I have interviewed a large list of people both in Sydney and
Melbourne. Recently I had the pleasure of interviewing Gary Johnston
(Jaycar/Electus Distribution), Matthew Connell (Chief Curator the
Powerhouse Museum Sydney), Ian Debenham (former Curator the Powerhouse
Museum Sydney), Campbell Bickerstaff (Curator the Powerhouse Museum
Sydney), David Demant (Senior Curator Museum Victoria), Ian oToole
(Curator Kurrojong Radio Museum), Stephen Jones(VJ, Computer Historian &
Author), Clare Gervasoni (Curator University of Ballarat) and Graeme
Hood (Electronics Engineer Lecturer University of Ballarat). This list
is by no means complete and is in addition to the following previously
interviewed subjects: Dick Smith, Andrew Greatbatch, Peter Atanackovic,
Bill Petrski, Owen Hill, Eugene Ruffolo, Andrew Griffiths, Matthew
Pryor, David L Jones, Leo Simpson, Doug Ford, Andy Gelme, Jon Oxer,
Grant Petty and Chris Nicol. In addition to that, I have filmed
Australia’s first Computer CSIRAC, the Kurronjong Radio Museum
collection, Silanna Semiconductor’s cleanroom and Fab plant, Blackmagic
Designs factory, Observant’s assembly area, Hanna Print’s “Silicon Chip”
printing line, and many, many individual labs and workspaces. It’s
certainly been incredibly interesting to me and I think will be
interesting to quite a wide variety of people when the documentary
series is complete."
