So.... did some demoscene outreach at my old school today.... :)

category: residue [glöplog]
Talked to the kids, showed them Toys, Heaven 7 and The Produkkt. Standby for the whole gang to swarm onto Pouet :)

Interestingly, for the older class, when I showed Toys and asked them "Who thinks this is cool?", there weren't many hands going up. After The Produkkt, THAT situation changed! :)


Come on, where ARE you guys? :)
(im hesitant to ask but) any reason why you showed them 3 demos which are all 12+ years old?

because current demos suck! ;)

to have them older than the audience? ;)

Well.... Heaven 7 is as complex as it should get for an average *15* yr old...? They're completely new to the concept of 64k,... I don't want it to get too intimidating, right? (especially since I'm not sure of how much handholding they'll get, here on Pouet).
Told them to read old issues of Hugi as well, hope they take my advice.
Giving *15* yr olds the advice to visit pouet is highly questionable ;)

What do you mean? Looking at the bbs and prod comments, 15 year olds seem to be the prime audience of this website.

I use "Elevated" for all kind of outreach and it works perfectly. The best, fastest and easiest way TO MAKE THEM UNDERSTAND :D

arka, ohhh it's SO nice to see you here. welcome to pouet :) You may want to get yourself a scene nickname, instead of using your real name. it's time for you to get immersed in demoscene culture :) where are the rest of you guys?

bugo, raer: damn, I KNEW I could count on the demoscene. thanks SO much. i take back my comment about handholding on Pouet, you guys are the best.
GET THE FUUUUU OUT OF POUET!
ITS A TRAP!

I use numb res, uncovering static (compared it to google.com, used to be ~150k) and cdak (party version) (compared it to google.com logo, ~7k) ^^
