    Well the demos are getting better tech wise. Thats really promising. The only thing that I cannot stand about the Demoscene is music taste… mute on all 😀

    Is there anyone who actually cares for demoscene these days?!

  • Igor

    Yes there is, many if us old computer geeks like me grow up and started our careers watching this things and learning a lot from it. Now even after a few decades in computer business I still find demoscene interesting while watching nice demos with my kids who also find them interesting. Demoscene simply keeps me young… :)

    I like demoscene, those prods are pretty amazing!

  • Michal

    I like demoscene very much.

  • @Igor: Totally well put.

    Btw Function organizers could tell a thing or two – considering the last few years, this was the biggest Function. They underestimated the number of visitors, so they literally ran out of entry tickets while ppl still kept coming in :)
    So yeah, there are definitely people who still care about the scene!

    Demoscene is my time portal to youth when I had Commodore 64 (I still have it, fully functional) and spend many hours of my time loading and watching great demos from magnetic tapes and 5.25″ floppy disks and few years later from 3.5″ floppy disks on Amiga 500. Although now I’m mostly hardware geek still it’s amazing for me to see how much great audio/visual effect can be squeezed on such a small place. Demo groups are wizards for me, wizards with time machines… :)
