The Alternative Zone 2004
The Alternative Zone ("AltZone") is our contribution to Assembly '04, the largest computer party in the world. While Assembly does not quite represent our idea of "alternative" we do feel it is somewhat complementary to The Alternative Party. Indeed, Assembly '95 -- because of what it was -- lead to the idea of having a truly different event with a much wider range of machines. What we plan to do at this year's Assembly is bring in some of the spirit and experimentation that we feel is so important for the Alternative Party, thus leading to a better Assembly. At the same time we will be telling people about our own event.
AltZone04 can be found in the corner of the Oldskool area. Everyone is welcome to come to chat and enter our competitions!
Continuing the tradition started at Assembly 2001, we will be organising some "alternative" compos with our own prizes and entries. Just for something a bit different and complementary to the massive main competitions.
