There's been some interest expressed in having a demonstration / Q&A of the various hax the development community is aware of and how they work.

The goals, as I see them, are:
  • Let people see what's possible. Many of the "hacks" could be used in future age design as real artistic techniques (and one of them is already in one of Cyan's ages! find out which at the event!)
  • Bring a bit more transparency to the world of the devs. We release a lot of source code, but a bit of explanation goes a long way.
  • Give the devs a safe space to show off, so we don't have any more flying arches or mysterious Bahro.

OHB has already volunteered to help organize such an event, so what I'd like to do is gauge interest and get a schedule setup. This event will almost certainly be in a neighborhood, unless anyone has a very compelling argument to use a more public area.

A weekend would be best, probably a weekend that's NOT the guild meeting. Giving the demonstrators more time to prepare will mean a better show and a better Q&A, so I don't want to rush things.

I end with these questions:
  • What would you like to see demonstrated? We aren't all-powerful, but we can do a lot
  • What would you like explained in more detail? so we can prepare our explanations
  • When do you want to see this event happen?

Since RAWA's announcement gives explorers a specific place for these demonstrations to take place and an appointed organizer (OHB), it is better that discussion now continues in The Hood of Illusions forum.
