Default Jens talk on developing Minecraft

Jens gave a long talk at Dreamhack on what issues he and Notch have when developing Minecraft, especially why they don't do things like add dragons or allow the height of the world to be raised. He is not a very experienced public speaker, but he is quite understandable if you have a bit of programming background. You also may find that the image isn't quite in sync with the audio, but it really doesn't affect its understandability.

Part 1 (his talk, 34 mins) - Justin.tv - dreamarena -
Part 2 (questions afterwards, 40 mins) - Justin.tv - citricsquid's channel - Jens talk 2

Actually the first link you have is FRA (the swedish [military] intelligence agency) talking about virus reverse engineering with IDA Pro (which I have actually looked at, very little though) and bot nets. But that will be hard for you guys to understand as it's in swedish
They also talk about swedish hacking and hackers, but not much about minecraft.

The correct link for his talk is Justin.tv - citricsquid's channel - Jens talk

Out of curiosity; how much do you guys know about dreamhack given that it's a pretty much swedish only event?

Hehe, I was fairly active in the demoscene in the mid-late 90s, so know a little about it. Have never got to go to that or any other major events though.

Cool, I have a friend that was also into that stuff. He and his friends went to dreamhack once if I recall correctly (they got sponsored and went in a luxury bus )
He showed me some pretty cool demos he and others have made, amazing things that took like no room on the harddrive at all and still produced awsome graphics and music right on the cpu.

This is run on an amiga and fits on a single floppy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5kuYfTCGLg
This also runs on an amiga, but I don't know how much space it takes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDrICN4UJoA (notice use of ray tracing)
This runs on an 18 year old PC: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XtCW-axRJV8&NR=1

Oops, that must have been the next talk that came up and I must have accidentally clicked on it. Thanks for the correction.
