I don't, but amazing accomplishment anyway folks!

Maybe let's add this to pouet as a demo running on a platform called "unesco bureaucrats".

Does this come with a nice cash injection perhaps?
I wouldn't mind a UBI for demosceners. Should be easier now than ever.

i think that already happened like last year in Tschörmany as i remember tweets about it? or is it only official since yesterday?
It is quite amazing I think! Congratulations on this achievement!

The other recognized intangible cultural heritages are quite heavy hitters. Remarkable that the demoscene can punch in the same league as clock making and book binding crafts.

Full list of recognized culture:

Deutsche Gebärdensprache – DGS
Gemeinwohlorientierte Sportvereinskultur
Herstellung von mundgeblasenem gläsernen Lauschaer Christbaumschmuck
Hüttenkultur im Pfälzerwald
Idee und Praxis der Kunstvereine
Kamenzer Forstfest
Kaspertheater als Spielprinzip
Marktredwitzer Krippenkultur
Schwörtagstraditionen in ehemaligen Reichsstädten
Traditionelle Bewässerung der Wässerwiesen in Franken
Traditionelle Karpfenteichwirtschaft in Bayern
Weinkultur in Deutschland

I want a SFC comeback with "Gutenberg never did this, Bitch!"

It's amazing. Congrats and hats off to those who did the ground work to make this happen.

Last year's announcement was that the application had passed the 1st, regional selection, and this one is it for da whole Germany.

Congratulations and kudos to everyone involved in making this happen, great achievement!

Hmm curious, there is no mention of the demoscene anywhere on the unesco.org website or the world heritage list. Shouldn't there be at least a list entry or notice for Demoscene in Finland from last year?
