As mentioned in the Wurm thread.. there is a great big convention/show of sorts in Finland this weekend called Assembly 2003. A place for coders to get together and show their 'art' and such that is actually promoted heavily by tech companies and the tourism guys in Finland.http://www.assembly.org/
Why don't we ever have anything like this in North America?
An internet pal of mine is going there with a demo group to show off his Java intro in the 64kB compo, btw. WooHoo!
The whole "Demo Scene" has never really taken off in North America.. I wonder why?
