Blockparty a US Demoscene Event
Uncategorized Add comments
Last year I made my nearly annual journey to Cleveland Ohio for one of my personal favorite conferences, Notacon. Notacon has never been a purely “tech” conference, but instead focuses on the areas where tech meets art and creativity. As a result it wasn’t long before someone attempted to bring back what is now a lost art for the most part in the United States… The demo scene. Block party is the demoscene event that occurs at Notacon. I was literally blown away by several of the entries last year. Of particular notority was Jeri Ellsworth’s Custom FPGA board. I am looking forward to going again this year, but I thought I’d post about it for everyone else’s benefit. You can read more about the events here:

Any idea who won?
…and when you say you were literally blown away, what you presumably mean is that you were figuratively blown away.
I honestly forget, it would be nice if they put a little more effort into their site to be sure.
I just flew in and boy my arms are tired.
