Hello folks,
 
I'm Starcat from the Jag forum and I just discovered this:
 
The Atari ST and The Creative People vol. 2
Digital entrepreneurs review their demoscene past. A narrative art book with 90s pixel-creativity.
 
 
I think this is amazing and needs support!
 
Cheers

I call it stupid when someone destroys any vintage computer or computer parts. I do not care what the cause is. Plain stupid.

To be honest, I just liked the project.

That video on the other hand, I don't see why somebody would do that. :? That's not really good promotion among the Atari scene.

However the book seems to be promising. Only 4 days left.

I just talked to the author and the video wasn't at all meant to cause hurt feelings.

He himself was active in the demoscene back in the day and while he doesn't consider the Atari mouse to be very good, the video was meant as an artists expression. A way to show the disruptive and creative spirit of the scene.

It's obvious that the book is full of love for Atari and the community.

First book, vol 1, was. really, REALLY, an awesome book. More on the people who made the ST a great computer and not only a nice combination of chips.

I cannot wait for the Vol 2, suspense !
