Nearly 5 years ago I thought Boot in 60 (well more Boot in 30) would never get finished, let alone help inspire another project, but both has happened. Eddie Pedalo aka mastertronic had a similar idea to Boot in 60, hence myself releasing it to foolishly show him the whole utter futility of the whole idea. 😛 Well weirdly it had the opposite effect, and so thought sod it, if you can’t beat ’em then join ’em and got involved. 😉
Now it’s called 72, referring to the 72 hours ie. 3 days to create your piece…it’s already on part 7 – check out the great part by Lee Spoons.
It’s interesting watching the whole (much faster and most likely better organised!) procedure now, the new(er) media and file sharing make something like this much easier. Back in the day (grandad!) the whole FTP thing just added days or weeks to the whole thing, as people struggled with my FTP server and their clients, whereas online sharing, email without tiny file limits and Mediafire/Divshare I bet just make it far easier.
Well that’s what I’m telling myself as they roar over the 10 minute mark 😉
Still looking for people to ‘play’ and get involved, so contact Eddie via this thread on GYBO I guess is the best.
