What’s DOS got to do, got to do with it?

Why we do what we do… hint: it’s not so we can go back to the days of GeoCities. It’s so we can go forward differently by taking the best of the personal computer era into the web era.

A sneak peek at Aral’s presentation at NewCrafts Paris next week and a chance for him to rehearse his live-coding setup. We’ll also be covering the latest developments in Kitten and Domain.
