Where The Hell is Matt?

Whilst on my usual wanderings around the internets, I happened to land on a site about an extraordinary guy called Matt...

Matt is a 28-year-old itinerant deadbeat from Connecticut. In February of 2003, he quit his job in Brisbane, Australia to go walk the Earth, like Caine from Kung Fu. He made this site so he could keep his family and friends updated about where he is in his travels. He realizes that Caine from Kung Fu probably wouldn't make a web site about walking the Earth, but he accepts that there are certain ways in which he and Caine differ.

The Australian Amiga Demo Scene Archive

Any of you old time Amiga owners would know what demos were all about. You could say they were the precursor to modding, where a group of talented programmers, artists and musicians worked together on various kinds of "demos" which often showed off ground breaking hardware-pushing routines accompanied with great presentation. Except there were no commercial engines to work with back then, and the tools were much more primitive :)
