Vito`SketchCow: is there a term of art for Emularity-style emulation, as a counterpoint to emulation-as-a-service?
client-side emulation? fat emulation? browser-based emulation?
or should I just call it Emularity

zinoBrowser-Based is often used. I'd say "In-browser Emulation" gets closer to the core of it, but my non-native English is not quite sure where you stand on that hyphen. [20:16]
......... (idle for 41mn)
db48xzino: that hyphen is perfect [20:57]
.... (idle for 15mn)
Vito`yeah Google suggested in-browser emulation to me when I searched for browser-based emulation [21:12]
baiit's nice to know that google now has opinions on what it should be called
we've made it
[21:14]
db48xheh [21:14]
Vito`anyone know why azakai named emscripten, emscripten? [21:15]
zinoWell, it makes C-ish things into ECMA-script, so there is play on words right there.
(Only a guess)
[21:18]
DFJustinnah it's tongue-in-cheeck bad english for "make something into a script"
compare "embiggen" from an episode of the simpsons
[21:26]
...... (idle for 28mn)
zinoThat's a perfectly cromulent word! [21:54]
SketchCowYes, fairly sure it's a play off embiggen [21:58]
baithat's what I read, yeah
it's covered in the faq or the docs somewhere
or maybe there was a mailing list post
[22:03]
SketchCowThank goodness I nearly never have to answer why I name half my things [22:04]
..... (idle for 20mn)
db48x:) [22:24]
SketchCowI am in the process of moving machines; FOS as we know it going away.
This will be a huge pain in the ass.
The only saving grace is that the machines are up simultaenously.
[22:25]
Vito`: I'm just going to respond here. [22:33]

Vito`https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?format=default&id=753184
embiggen reference wins
[22:48]
SketchCowSo, as you've by no doubt figured out by now - the field of video game preservation is kind of a mess, and we're one of the vanguards of it; we're literally in the elite corps of folks doing anything tangible.
(Sorry, got pulled away there.)
I am wondering if you mean video game HISTORY or in actual preservation of old video games.
Very few formal groups. Strong Museum of Play, UTexas, Stanford, etc. And almost all are interested or functioning in game as artifact.
Attempts to gather interviews are almost always being done randomly.
As a result, Kevin Savetz' anthropological interviews stand as a massive set.

If you're looking for something specific, I can see what I can find.
for what it's worth, one of my 13,000,000 side projects is this collection: https://archive.org/details/softwarepreservation
[23:02]
Vito`Oh you're replying to my email gotcha [23:18]
SketchCowYeah
I have gotten very behind on my mail.
I don't do very well on open-ended questions. not at all.
I will be in a better place once these documentary monkeys are off my back.
Endless stress.
So I have this mailbox of requests and I'm down to the largest ones that are basically projects in themselves.
I assume you're doing some sort of thing, based on your questions.
[23:19]
Vito`SketchCow: yeah, just looking for names and institutions doing actual preservation, so I can see what they've published and where, so I can see if those places will accept a paper from me
Not history, but archival/storage/emulation/presentation
[23:24]
DFJustinStiletto in #archiveteam would be a good one to ask, I think there was an EU government thing but I forget the url
all of the big orgs are pretty useless I think but if you just want to get something officially issued
[23:27]
Vito`yeah looking for an actual formal academic journal or conference proceeding to get something into
figure they probably also publish in humanities things not just library science
hence looking for people who would have published, so I can see where they've done so
[23:29]
SketchCowYou're going to keep finding it "scant"
(Spoiler? Spoiler.)
There's a number of books, but they generally talk about digital preservation.
And they will mostly mention us and EaaS
Welcome to the big leagues
[23:37]
Vito`okay, I'll start with those places and looking for the book and their authors
*books
thanks
