Quick note about the Center for American History Video Game Archive

9 Nov

Some folks from KLRU, our local PBS station, posted some video coverage of the Video Game Archive fund-raiser. You can find it at docubloggers and it’s pretty cool.

Response to the news about the archive’s creation has been great. I’ve already met with researchers interested in using the materials the Center is just beginning to collect and the folks at the Center for American History tell me they’re getting lots of interest.

When I first posted this, I wrote that I thought the Center was about to hire someone but, as someone commented, the Center has actually posted a job listing — they’re actually looking to hire someone. How exciting is that?

Wheels are turning!

    Hi, i don’t if it’s the best way to get in touch with you, but let’s try…I’m working for a French Videogame magazine, called Joypad, and, every month, we’re publishing an interview (we call it “La longue interview”) about a VIP of the gaming scene, his story, his career, his ideas about games… We’ve already have Jason Rubin, Jeff Morris, Cliffy B., the CEO of Sony France, etc. So, would you like to join them in the Joypad Hall of Fame? Well, i leave my mail here… Thanks
