To everyone who came out to the inaugural TEDx Rochester—and especially to those who stopped by to play an arcade game or two in the lobby of host Geva Theater Center—I would like to send my deepest thanks. It was an honor to be part of this event and to speak about the rich history of electronic games and our current initiatives at NCHEG.
The “I remember when” stories many of you shared between games are a reminder of why we at NCHEG collect, preserve, and make these resources available to you. It is always terrific to talk with other passionate gamers.
For those who were not able to join us for this night of “ideas worth sharing,” video of my presentation, as well as my colleague Scott Eberle’s presentation on play, will soon be available in a future blog.
Plus, we would love to see you for our evening with the CHEGheads at Strong National Museum of Play on Friday, November 13 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. We will be sharing with you some of the museum’s exciting future plans for a major electronic games exhibit.
