Published on: July 28, 2007

While I am in Las Vegas to DefCon 15 in less than two weeks, will I also use my time in Vegas to watch the Cirque Du Soleil shows, which I have not seen yet. First show on my list is Cirque du Soleil – The Beatles Love – at The Mirage on Friday. The online reservation system was a pain in the neck and did not work. I had to order the tickets over the phone eventually. They are lucky that I am a hard core fan of the Cirque to jump through all those hoops to get my ticket. Cirque Du Soleil – “Love” Video What’s Left?I tried to get a ticket for the Cirque du Soleil show – “Zumanity” at the New York, New York Hotel and Casino. Its a Cirque show with sexual flavor, but that did not work out the way I wanted it to. So, that means that I will not be able to see “Zumanity” when I am in Vegas. They have vacation that week(end). After “Love” will only be “Zumanity” and the new Cirque show “Kooza” be missing on my list of shows to see. Then I got them all. I booked already a ticket for Kooza, when the show will be in San Francisco, CA in November, later this year. Here is a little teaser for the new show.

I will be at this years DefCon conference in Las Vegas, between August 3rd and 5th, 2007. DefCon is the world’s largest underground hacking convention! This will be the 15th installment of the conference. There will be over 175! Speakers and tons of sessions over multiple tracks. My friend Christian Wirth aka “RaD Man”, founder of ACiD Productions will be a speaker at the panel “Self-Publishing and the Computer Underground“, together with Myles Long Director of Depravity, cDc communications/CULT OF THE DEAD COW and Rob “Flack” O’Hara member cDc’s Ninja Strike Force. Have you ever considered publishing your own book? Your own DVD? Self-publishing has been a part of the computer underground since its inception, from the Neon Knights to the Syndicate of London’s recent book “End of Dayz”. This panel will discuss types of self-publishing (both on- and off-line) and their relevance to the computer underground. They will also discuss their personal experiences in self-publishing. Ample time for questions will be available. Learn about the process from people who have gone through it. Jason Scott from Textfiles.com and “BBS – The Documentary“, who is a DefCon veteran, will be speaking at DefCon again too. This years session is titled “THE EDGE OF FOREVER – MAKING COMPUTER HISTORY“ Too often, “Computer History” gets shoved into a forgotten bin of irrelevancy, devoid of use for lessons and understanding. Even more often, people often fail to realize they’re making history themselves. Jason Scott will walk though the basics of computer history, what[…]

The demoscene is huge. The demoscene is international. The demoscene spans across all computer platforms, including game consols. However, the existence of something like the demoscene is unknown to most people. Table of Contents Introduction 1. The Commodore 64 2. The Commodore Amiga 500 3. The Old School IBM PC (MS DOS) 4. Remakes Introduction Let me introduce this vast scene to you via a few hand picked examples of the releases produced by the demoscene during its early days and prime. The demoscene is active to this day and produces exciting entertainment even on platforms that are not available today anymore. Most current productions are nowadays for the IBM PC and run on any standard Windows XP machine with DirectX and Direct3D compatible Graphics Cards with 3D Accelleation and DirectSound compatible Soundcard. The Demos presented here are for much older platforms and can not be replayed without special software and some special computer knowledge on modern PCs; but thanks to Google Video and YouTube is that not a big problem today, because it enables me to show you the Video recordings of those old productions as if you were running it on those old machines yourself. The Videos were created by other Demosceners and are available on DVD for purchase. The Commodore 64 production was taken from the “Digital Memories” DVD, the Commodore Amiga productions were taken from the Mindcandy DVD Volume 2 and the oldschool PC Demos were taken from the Mindcandy DVD Volume 1. Enjoy! 1. The[…]

Good Article Nomination and the Day of Independence

Published on: July 4, 2007

It is Wednesday the 4th of July 2007. Today is a holiday, Independence Day. I have some work to do, but I also did something that is dear to my heard.It is today almost exactly one month after I posted about the struggle with the featured article nominations for the article to search engine optimization at Wikipedia and the article did appear on the Wikipedia homepage for everybody to see. That was two days ago on Monday, July 2, 2007. Jonathan Hochman aka “Jehochman“ at Wikipedia did a good job there and also spent a lot of time on the article to get it up to the level of featured. That an article to a subject like search engine optimization gets featured at Wikipedia was very encouraging. You must consider that a number of Wikipedians think less than favorable about anything related to monetization and internet marketing.I spent a lot time myself on the article to affiliate marketing, which I nominated end of last week for the status of a “good article” (I step before “featured article”). The nomination process is currently on hold to do some tweaking and tuning of the article. Especially help with the grammar is needed and a bit rephrasing work for a few things here and there.Graeme Bartlett is the editor who is doing the review of the article. He gave me some useful tips, including where to find some practical help. One is a new project within the Wikipedia project “Business and Economics”, which[…]
