   blackmarket #228 was originally released at mekka^symposium 2001 as a 
   demoscene papermag. following an inter-platform approach, it aimed at
   providing the reader with the back-then current state of the scene on
   on different machines and in different contexts.

   the  main  editing  work was done by  raver/pht^dcs  in  riga/latvia, 
   sceners from around the globe  provided articles. final touchups were
   done at dipswitch's place in  cologne/germany  just before the party. 
   around 200  copies were produced by several enthusiasts and spread at 
   mekka^symposium.

   originally,  the  idea was to keep this edition  straight paper-only.
   then, at some  point,  we  thought  about producing a digital version
   which still  would not make on-screen reading  possible, but would at 
   least  print  out the mag to be read on paper. however,  these  plans
   never came to life.

   now,  over  10  years  later, we  decided  that it would not  do  the 
   back-then effort any  justice to sit on the original .tiff files just 
   like that. so we are releasing them now, in order to remind ourselves 
   on the state of our scene(s) in a  not-that-distant past, and also to 
   pay respect to all the people  involved in this undertaking back then 
   and who are now getting  -  better  late than  never  -  the deserved 
   audience well above the 200 copies of 2001. 

   the  magazine  is  a  historical  document by now. several platforms, 
   sceners   and   contexts   described   there   are   long  gone.  the 
   inter-platform  scene  spirit,  however,  that we tried to evoke with 
   this mag, is stronger than ever.
