Block Party 2022

The Centre for Computing History, Cambridge

Saturday 23rd & Sunday 24th April

We'll be back next year with more low-bandwidth technology and art. If you like Teletext, or Viewdata, Prestel, Minitel, PETSCII, and more, then please join us. Jason is our social media supremo, our Discord server is open to all not-bots, or email me the old-fashioned way (address below.)

Until next time, keep it blocky!
