In 2021, myself and my co-editor Lo Ferris published two issues of New Session, a literary magazine designed to be accessed over Telnet. In the 80s and 90s, Telnet was a technology that became synonymous with BBSs and MUDs, but has since largely been forgotten by the average computer user. The core of the motivation for New Session was to revisit the past using a specifically queer and trans lens, recasting this system outside of pure nostalgia and instead as a tool to be used for telling new stories.

Between this and the release of "Body Out Of Time", an erotic Hypercard stack, I've found old technology to be a poignant tool for reimagining the past. This talk will focus on avoiding the allure of nostalgia-for-nostalgia's sake, and how the constraints of outdated systems and aesthetics can be used as a springboard for something new.
