Subject: Digital culture accepted first time as UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity Dear all, for all of you, who are interested in the cultural recognition of programming culture, this recent decision of the Finnish UNESCO surely represents a milestone: As announced at April 9th, 2020 the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture listed the Demoscene on proposals from the National Board of Antiquities and the Intangible Cultural Heritage Expert Group as national cultural heritage of humanity. And that is only the start. Since the Demoscene is an international culture, similar applications has been initiated or already submitted in other countries.
