READ_ME: The beauty of tty

Just finished my second talk. No more talks to give. I am happy.

On the stage now is Amy Alexander as the Ubergeek performing live a wild mix of music and using a wireless computer keyboard to control extreme whitespace, a perl script popping out tons of lovely colored terminal graphics. Pretty nice to look at.

It is interesting to see how the “geeky” design is gaining ground in the art sphere. The beauty of naked tty visuals is somehow telling a story from the mysterious and hidden depths of the electronic machines which somehow pleases the Zeitgeist.
