"50 Years of

A 2021 Journey from Oregon Trail to A.I. Dungeon

[...]

Every week in 2021, I'll be posting an in-depth look at one text-based computer game from each year between 1971 and 2021, starting next week with The Oregon Trail. For each game, we’ll take a meaty deep dive into what it was like to play in the context of its original release (on a chattering , over a dial-up modem in a prototype web , on a brand-new iPad) and how its ideas influenced players and the next generation of makers. When warranted, we’ll dig into old or source code to tease out how each game worked, why it was built the way it was, and what it did that was new, interesting, or successful."

step 3 is starting to get fun. Had to compile the dev version of fs-uae to get stable support in the emulation.

further into the rabbit hole, started to document findings about SoundStudio. Sadly a lot of stuff has just completely disappeared. Search engines are useless, and the wayback machine can only help with a very very few sites (also assuming that you have a URL to start with). Right now the leftover knowledge seems to be scattered across the archives of past discussions on a few web forums.

Current roadmap

If, like me, you have been unable to follow in real-time the hearings currently taking place, then visit Craig Murray's blog to catch up and read his thorough and detailed daily summaries. These are not short pieces, but fairly long and complete reports about what is being discussed, presented, and challenged during the sessions, going in details of the anomalies and tactics used by the prosecution.

Currently no mainstream media, even those who present themselves as independent, are covering the hearings in any serious fashion, if at all.

Regardless of what you think of Assange and it is important that what is being discussed there can circulate as much as possible. Many things are being debunked, and overall, the outcome of the hearings for potential US extradition will have dramatic chilling effects on future efforts to publish such documents.

>new academic year will be a mix of onsite and online education tailored to everyone's needs

me and my colleagues be like:

Today and tomorrow, some freshly graduated students will present at the wild state in as part of an programme created and hosted by the Universität für künstlerische und industrielle Gestaltung.

The presentations are streamed online:

@pedrosaclout Tactical is an online republishing platform that exists in both the clear and dark web, exploring topics such as anonymity, paywalls, archives and provenance through digital watermarks.

@estragon Syster Papyri Magicae is a web-based project that unfolds the phenomenon of exclusions in male-dominated tech environments, aiming to discuss and activate feminist practices that respond to this issue.

@r1ta Networks of Care offers a collection of user guidelines for you to browse, dissect and analyse. Delve into the conversations with different members and find useful templates, resources, and experiments. Let’s explore the networks of care generated together.

Full scheduled at ausstellungen.ufg.at/wildstate

OnionShare

onionshare.org/

"Securely and anonymously share files of any size. A web server is started, making OnionShare accessible as a Tor Onion Service, potentially temporarily or in a stealthy manner, over the Internet. An unguessable address is generated and is shared for the recipient to open in the Tor Browser to download the files. No separate server or third party file-sharing service required. You host the files on your own computer."

There's a GUI, but the CLI is so good, just `onionshare somestuff.bin` and you get a temporary onion service serving a static password protected website with the file made available. By default once the file has been downloaded, everything shuts down.
