Questions for students:
Is performance typing the logical successor to laptop techno?
Will whitespacing ever replace whitewater rafting?
Do attempts to make Linux/coding/open_source cool miss the true beauty of the awkward ugly duckling?
# Extreme Whitespace takes advantage of your linux/unix text
# terminal's natural talent as a realtime video instrument!
# It's really pretty simple. About all this script really does it is
# continually spew whitespace into your terminal for you to type
# Video jamming the natural way! Typing as performance art? Reverse karaoke!
# No patches to build, no peripherals to buy, no DirectX/OpenGL hassles -
# Just peck away!
# Somewhat inspired by one of our favorite visual music films.
# And also by the fact that we have been typing commands into unix shells
# several hours a day for the past 9 years, and we type kinda fast and
# loud and use the arrow keys a lot. Sometimes entire rooms turn around and
# stare when we type. So we felt very performative and we started to get
# very misty about the whole damn thing.
