2017-10-12: Site remade after fifteen years.
I am Viznut a.k.a. Ville-Matias Heikkilä.
I want to be among the builders of a better world
to replace the
one that is currently falling apart.
I eagerly accept suggestions for co-operation. Computing is a thing I
understand something about.
The main purpose for this site is to have a single place
for the things I have made.
I have been programming since the age of seven, and much of my programming
has always been art.
On the demoscene I have been particularly interested in the low-end
technical extremism. Increases in computing power are rather boring to me.
Technical experimentation sometimes leads to invention. Bytebeat music,
based on extremely short computer programs, become a bigger phenomenon
in some circles in 2011.
In my blog, I have been writing about my own projects as well as the
issues of the wider world.
In 2012, I founded the Skrolli
magazine out of the
desire to give visibility to some of the more sustainable and less
consumption-oriented corners of computer culture. I was the editor-in-chief
until December 2016.
