The Future Was Here and some restructuring

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

Added Jimmy Maher’s The Future Was Here: The Commodore Amiga (2012), which is a recent addition to the MIT Press Platform Studies series. Both a nostalgic and useful read dealing with the hardware and software of one of the most innovative machines of the 1980s. One chapter is dedicated to the activities of the cracker and demoscenes.

The Bibliography page was reorganized a little, too. The most visible change is that now the publications are split to Finnish, English, German and others, since it didn’t make much sense to have a category called “English and other languages”.

Added The beauty of the byte: towards an aesthetic model of demoscene intros by Stijn Peeters. Seems to be a report written for a course.
