    New article: Teletext Fest 2016 retrospective for Digitiser2000

    Read it! Goujon John shall continue staring at you until you do so. Can’t be swayed by his piercing gaze? Then perhaps you’ll be interested in this little run-down of events at the first Text Fest in Cambridge earlier this month. It’s more of an extended diary entry than a review, but that didn’t stop…

  • New interview: ‘Not a silent titan’ for Mistigris

    Ever wanted to know about those messages I send to my mistress via teletext? Or how on earth you can get away with printing lime green text on a magenta background? Or what the pixel artists of teletext’s heyday are doing now? If you answered ‘no’ to all those questions, bear in mind I only…

Here’s a compilation of chatline art from German teletext in July 2015. This is the censored edition which attempts to conform to YouTube Community Guidelines, but I have no idea…

    Ordinarily, a long cross country car journey would offer the chance for me to hone my diminishing pub cricket skills. But since the ‘sport’ has become about as entertaining as the English national team circa 1996, I immersed myself in Microsoft Word and a collection of Wigan Athletic teletext pages. Yes, this article was written…
