Origin of the word DEMOSCENE

Does anyone know when and where this word appeared for the first time ?

There was the "crackscene" before the demoscene and crackers were putting intros to their cracked software relases.

In 1993, during the Gates Wars, a soldier took a lethal bullet while defending the very last ECS and ST outposts. A rescue team was on its way but it arrived too late, they barely had the time to ask him about his name before he fainted. His name was demoscene.
The name remained in everybody's mind and some people still keep praise him nowadays, especially during the summer.

Before you start or reply to a topic within our noble oldskool pouët BBS you should be advised of the following characteristics:
1. The Pouët admins are in no way responsible, or willing to ever be, regarding their users behaviour.
2. Pouët is in fact not a valid representation of the real spirit of the scene. It never claimed to be.
If that's what you were looking for when reading our BBS topics, we strongly suggest you visit a demoparty instead.

The oldskool pouët BBS is mearly a forum for sceners, with obviously too much free time, to release their frustrations and advertise some scene information for salted communitary feedback, as opposed to polluting the prod comments section.

In fact, the oldskool pouët BBS is a snakepit ZOO full of deadly traps and flamebait chocolure for all sorts of careless sceners. So enter at your own risk, try not to feel easily insulted and remember: please don't feed the trolls.
If you're a newbie to the scene or a missplaced outcast scene legend about to make the mistake of attempting civilized conversation within our halls, please forgive our users for their careless idiocy, mindless absurd behaviour and extended internal jokes, try not to take things too seriously.

You have been warned.

In 1799, during the Egyptian Campaign of Napoleon Bonaparte, a huge cube made of stone was found near the pyramid of Keops.
This ancient building contains a lot of hieroglyphics describing old copy parties.
The word demoscene is a translation to french (made by Jean-François Champollion) of one of those hieroglyphics.
Thats common knowledge.
