Scene World Podcast Episode #56 - PLATO and IRATA.ONLINE with Thomas Cherryhomes

PLATO is the great, great, great granddaddy of the online computer network. Developing forums, email, multiplayer networked games, screen sharing, and instant messaging, it is responsible for many of the things we take for granted today. AJ and Joerg take a deep dive with IRATA.ONLINE's Thomas Cherryhomes into why PLATO is as awesome as it is, and how it still has plenty to offer both retro- and non-retro-enthusiasts. The interview starts 19 minutes into the recording! Watch the YouTube version preferably!

Syntax 2018, november, 10th - 11th, AU

[ Demoparty.net ] Syntax 2018, november, 10th - 11th, AU

date: november, 10th - 11th
country: AU

»A weekend of chilled fun is coming up fast on between the 10th and 11th of November. Clear your calendars!

Join the fun of retro computing, modern-day coding, chip music, pixel graphics and DIY electronics projects.

It should be noted that the location of the party tends to be somewhat "volatile" and that if you think you know where it is, it's best to check. And if you DO find out, please tell the demoparty.net people, as we have 2 entries for previous parties that have _NO ADDRESS_ and I am not adding a third.
Go To Syntax. It will rule.
Ok the webpage is apparently down right now so the backend won't let me add it, so the actual webpage which is in various search engine caches (but not actually online right at this very moment, so the check _is valid and correct_... technically correct, the best kind of correct) is http://www.syntaxparty.org/
Again you should go to syntax. It will rule.«
