  • Demoscene in Poland gets accepted as national immaterial cultural heritage
    Baracuda @ Saturday, December 18, 2021

    The polish demoscene is accepted as living national cultural heritage.

    Poland joins the successes of Finland and Germany, and our experience opens doors for other countries, whose demoscene communities are also working on their proposals. The goal of this cooperation is to include the world demoscene on the UNESCO list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity – and it will be the first-ever digital culture on this list.” Andzrej Licherowicz and others at kskpd.pl. We are extremely happy that Poland, right after Finland and Germany, recognized the digital culture of the demoscene as an immaterial cultural heritage. It is a huge milestone, as it confirms on an institutional level that the demoscene is a major influence on digital culture east and west, north and south, crossing all borders and boundaries. We are super grateful for the success of the Polish scene and the community behind Kronika Polskiej Demosceny, which pushed the successful application with great passion and energy. Ogromne gratulacje!” Tobias Kopka – Co-Founder Art of Coding”

    Hate Bush joined Elysium as Musician while he left under the name chuinho MultiStyle Labs.

    After Board Rider left Blazon telling them he had to deal with his late wife's estate the whole month (his wife Stephanie passed away on May 12th, 2021) and that his life has more important things to do right now, BR joined asap the US based group AOD as Sysop and Tester. These group is mixed with genesis project and seventh sector guys and with guys who where in the past in these groups. To join another group with a lie using his death wife to do that is not my cup of tea. May she RIP. So only for the record these strange behaviour.
