What is the Demoscene?

"Short answer: A subculture in the computer underground culture universe, dealing with the creative and constructive side of technology, proving that a computer can be used for much more than writing a letter in MS-Word and hence emphasize on computer technology as just another medium that can transport ideas and styles, show off skills and express opinions etc."

- Thomas Gruetzmacher (aka Tomaes)
