                                PRESENTATION


                                   A Talk
                                     by

                               Jeri Ellsworth
                               (Circuit Girl)

    Jeri Ellsworth is a native Oregonian, born in Yamhill and raised
    in Dallas, Oregon.  Early on she became fascinated with electronics
    and 8-bit computers setting the stage for her unique approach to
    learning.  Not being challenged in school, she skipped higher
    education to pursue a career in car-racing and chassis fabrication.
    After that, she opened a chain of computer stores in Oregon and
    Washington.  She sold those to peruse a career in chip design,
    which lead her to design the CommodoreOne - based upon the
    Commodore 64 - using reconfigurable logic and the C64 DTV 30-
    games-in-one joystick, selling, a quarter million units.
    She currently works as an Oregon based consultant.

    I'm not sure what Jeri is going to speak about yet, but judging
    the talk she gave at Sanford, it should be very good indeed.
    See a video of her Sanford talk at:
    http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-1053309060448851979#

    Also, see her webs sites at:
    http://www.jeriellsworth.com/
    and

    Note:  Jeri was originally scheduled to give this talk last month,
    but it didn't happen due to unexpected illess.  Thus, we have
    reschedule her for March.
