ASCII by Jason Scott

Ding Ding Ding —

The clock ran out.

My intention was to post 30 entries in 30 days on here, but that was entirely too aggressive. Mostly, I like to think, because I believe strongly in posting meaty, informative essays and link collections that will make your life better. The background static of a life eating meals, seeing someone do something transiently stupid, or being caught up on the furor of the hour just isn’t what I’ve ever wanted ASCII to be. So I got about half the month filled the way I like to do things, and time has just run out.

By far, the biggest “thing” I’ve been involved with in the latter half of the year in terms of a specific “project” has been the DEFCON Documentary, an attempt to capture the zeitgeist of the DEFCON hacking convention in Las Vegas. I’ve not written much about that production, since I’ve been in production all this time – but at least I can show you something.

On December 25th, I released the DEFCON Documentary Preview Reel, about 20 minutes of DEFCON Documentary-related footage, of which probably 12-15 minutes will be in the final film. Here it is on vimeo:


The DEFCON Documentary Preview Reel has a minor sound issue at the beginning (first part too low, followed by a blast of music) and that’s fixed in a downloadable version DEFCON will be making available sooner rather than later.

Let’s see how I can do for 2013.
