In 1987, a German student wrote CHRISTMA EXEC – a virus whose basic mechanisms still work if you port them to today’s desktop computers. Why haven’t we changed in nearly 30 years? And what could we do instead?
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

“It made a generation who could code
A bubble before proper consoles, who all know
That the games you get today,
Well, they might be very flash,
But they’ll never beat the thrill of getting through Jetpac”
