One of my England friends on facebook posted a status today saying:
“Any mac users? Open terminal and type telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl
The force is strong with you”
I recognized the blinkenlights so I googled it and realized this project is still going strong, in a way. When you type this in, you see the whole episode of Star Wars played out in ASCII characters.
Here it is on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDS7lRcGxgI
Article about Terminal on Macs: http://lowendmac.com/crews/06/0110.html
Not sure if this pertains to the class or digital art, but a lot of the names in the article I recognized because of being in this class, such as ASCII and “blinkenlights”.
