Demoscene Exposed: Micro And Macro Ways Through The Maze. Introducing the MEGAontology to the demoscene.
As a digital subculture conditioned at a variety of levels from coding and encoding graphics to using algorithms to create music between an abundance of protocols for compression, the demoscene seems to be a huge maze to non-scene-participants. Artifacts and relevant context information are widely spread over the internet. Existing web-based platforms only allow a macro view on demoscene culture. This contribution provides a Semantic Web approach as a next generation perspective for the demoscene to make the maze of information more public, accessible and visible. An ontology-based framework allows integration, presentation, search and sharing of data from diverse sources to offer a micro view on demoscene materials.
