Title: Documentary - Digitale Verlustzone - Wie Deutschland den Anschluss verlor
Post by: MaV on 20:08, 20 May 20
So, I've had my 15 minutes of fame in the 90s due to some interview in local TV of which a scene will be shown every now and then (no details).

Some higher force in this universe apparently thought that once was not enough. Imagine my surprise while watching this documentary, when they showed me with almasys sitting before a CPC at last year's XZentriX party.

(the mentioned part starts at 13:23; the video will be online until 25.05.2020)


Well, I knew parts of the recording from that day will be shown eventually, but I stumbled upon this by chance which makes it weird. It also seems they needed to cut down the size of the bit and deleted the interviews others were giving (I myself tried to evade them as much as possible). I guess a gray haired guy just seemed to fit their narrative better than enthusiasts talking about their hobby.

The guy in the smurf costume should better watch out not to short out his printer port with all that wild Arduino cable junk coming out of the port. Looks like a recipe for disaster!  :'(

Very busy party - I see 4 people in the video. That all what's left from the CPC community in Germany?

No, the XzentriX 2019 was actually visited very nicely, but the tv sniplet does not reflect it. Well, German TV :picard: :picard2:

This was shot on Friday, one hour after opening, so most were still at work or on their way to the party.

The undertone / intro to that segment of the documentary is not nice, really - basically the intro says "Here is a bunch of old nerds that still value the antique stuff. All the designers of these original computers are already dead, but here they are. Here they can still get hands on with the soldering iron." And then they cut out all the interviews? WTF - so glad I am not paying any money to support German Government TV.
