Presentation: The Future of Video Games. Video games have been around since the 1970s.  The industry has generated money to rival the earnings of the film industry.  But can it continue to do so?  Thirty-year game industry veteran Tom Sloper analyzes the state of the game industry and where it is going, and promises to reveal a surprising platform of the future.

Tom Sloper has been a game producer and designer for 30 years.  He has designed and produced games for most major console platforms from the Atari 2600, 7800, and Vectrex on up to the Playstation, Xbox 360, Dreamcast, and DS, among others. He's worked for Sega, Atari, Activision, and Yahoo. Currently he consults, writes, and speaks, and teaches about video games at the University of Southern California.  His website is www.sloperama.com.


Future Salons are monthly educational, activist, and social events, focused on existing or emerging scientific, technological, entrepreneurial, or social change topics and projects worthy of your help and attention. We also cover critical-thinking, management, and personal change topics, and occasionally longer-term scientific and philosophical topics. Our goal is to make our rapidly changing world more fascinating, manageable, profitable, and positive-sum for all of us. We strive to be both doing-action-project oriented, and thinking-idea-prioritizing oriented. About the Future Salon Network initiated by John Smart: http://www.accelerating.org/futuresalon.html
