There's more information available for the upcoming (next June) STIC 2013 conference:

The Smalltalk Industry Conference STIC’13 will be held June 9-12, 2013 at the Wigwam Resort in Phoenix, Arizona. The theme is "30 Years of Smalltalk". The Call for Participation is being prepared and will be announced soon.

STIC’13 Call for Sponsors
We are actively recruiting sponsors for STIC’13. Please let me know asap if you have any qualified leads. We are especially interested in companies who were developers or early adopters of Smalltalk in the 1980’s and 1990’s (e.g. Xerox, PARC, IBM, Apple, Microsoft, etc.).

STIC’13 Sponsorship Levels (Preliminary)

  • Platinum $10,000
  • Gold $5000
  • Silver $2500
  • Corporate $1000
  • Academic $500

You can see the sponsors for the previous conference STIC’12 here.

Commemorative Pins
We are planning to make commemorative lapel pins similar to the Smalltalk Balloon pins that Xerox made for me to distribute in the 1980’s. The design for the pins was based on the iconic August 1981 Byte Magazine cover artwork and was approved by the artist Robert Tinney.

  • Xerox Smalltalk lapel pin approximately 1.3” tall circa 1984 (1000 produced)
  • Limited edition 11”x14” print of Byte Magazine August 1981 cover artwork, signed and numbered by Robert Tinney (500 produced)

Please let me know if you have a source for making high quality, low cost hard enamel lapel pins. Also, we may be interested in a sponsor for the new pins, so let me know asap.
