Zousan

The other day I was out at this place called the Pink Cow and I was fortunate to run into a group of web design women. One of them has this very cute website called Zousan.com about a family of elephants and their adventures. For example check out Zoupi’s adventures to Belgium. According to Kristen who runs the site, somebody she’d never met asked if Zoupi wanted to come to Belgium and off he went. She’s really jealous because Zoupi has been to see Belgium but she hasn’t.

If you are at all interested in the Eurodemos I suggest you check out this DVD. It’s all about the demoscene.

One side is all old skool stuff from the early 90s to about 97, before 3D accelerators. Some of them you probably have to be aware of the limits to computer power, about what else was out there, about the state of video games at the time etc to appreciate what made them interesting at the time. Others are still just well done and interesting today.
