About this event

For decades, gaming has been one of the central driving forces behind technological progress in the digital age — from increased storage and memory needs to advancements in graphic capabilities, and even how we interact with and socialize around media and each other. How has this medium morphed and changed, and more importantly, how do we ensure the preservation of this cultural driver in all of its forms? Please join us for Game Not Over! on June 23rd, featuring a fireside chat with John Carmack, independent AI researcher and Consulting CTO to Oculus/Facebook; and a panel discussion with Garry Kitchen, Industry Consultant and President/CEO of Audacity Games; Kelsey Lewin, Co-Director, The Video Game History Foundation; Kate Willært, Geek Culture Historian and Founder of A Critical Hit!; and Internet Archive's Free-Range Archivist Jason Scott as they discuss the past and present of the gaming industry, as well as why the Internet Archive is key to understanding its history. This is an Internet Archive fundraiser. Ticket sales will go towards the long-term preservation of our software collection and advance our mission of providing Universal Access to All Knowledge.
