Can the UMMOA hack into existence its own computer industry?
Over the years, the author of the article below has seen a lot of do-it-yourself retro computers.
However, Dirk Grappendorf has created one of the most polished looking 6502 systems to date, one that reminds us quite a bit of the venerable TRS-80 Model 100.
Can the United Micronations Multi-Oceanic Archipelago (UMMOA®), or the UMMOA and UMMOA Technology Friends & Partners produce computers like this, or even more powerful, for the price tag of USD 1,000? Can we hack into existence our own computer industry?
This is not a rhetorical question. The Governor of the UMMOA has never understood why they stopped producing the TRS-80 Model 100. Today they could have made it even more powerful and versatile.
Today they only produce computers, even computer languages for specialists, or specialist applications like the Internet, not for people and their general, and sometimes unique needs.
People don't exist anymore. People can use the Internet with computers they can buy, but people can no longer buy a computer that enables someone without a great education, but with lots of creativity, to create and run his own BASIC computer programs. The Governor of the UMMOA once made an astronomical discovery after developing one such complicated program, and it is important to understand that he is not an astronomer, he is not even an amateur astronomer!
We also need to build industries that cater to people, not just to specialists or rich people. If the UMMOA could foster one such industry into existence, we could go from our ground floor Third World national level of development, to the higher stage of the Third World, and without the recognition which is probably not going to come from UN member states anytime soon anyway.
Why try the impossible, i.e. to gain acceptance in this evil world as it is, when you can create your own world, a world where even average people, their families, and small businesses matter?
If you are willing to start, or help start this new world, with a new cottage computer industry, please contact the Governor of the UMMOA at the web form below:

It's official: the UMMOA is indeed a Third World nation
UMMOA, the industrious non-industry
Not of this world
