Demoscene is a new book about the computer hacker revolution of the 1980s. “The demoscene spawned a group of people that have worked in or started companies that played an important and pioneering role in the game, new media, digital graphics and ICT-sector industries in many countries. The demoscene was where many digital media artists, electronic music composers, as well as visual club culture and virtual community activists got their start.” Sounds pretty cool as thats a scene I can definitely relate to, like coding BASIC on an Apple IIe when I was in elementary school and going to the arcade after school and watching it close down because it had become a drug trafficking den. Ahh nostalgia!
