assembly won the grand prix

assembly won the grand prixAnother moment of glory to the Finnish digital culture: Assembly, the key event of demo scene won this year’s MindTrek Grand Prix, the largest Nordic new media price. In this shot from yesterday’s Gala, Pekka Aakko (Pehu of Accession) and Jussi Laakkonen (Abyss of Future Crew) accept the price from Risto Linturi, a veteran of Finnish computer scene and one of its leading telecom and futurology consultants. Great to see the computer fandom getting recognition! The impact of Assembly events has been major indeed.
