IGDA Chapter Inaugural Lecture at the University of Lincoln

Lincoln, UK

This was an overnight trip to Lincoln, the home of a spectacular cathedral and also the University of Lincoln, which is starting up a student chapter of the IGDA. As the organization's first chairman, I was privileged to deliver the inaugural lecture for the chapter thanks to the invitation of my host, Mark Doughty. It was called "Overview of the Interactive Entertainment Industry," a basic introduction for newcomers. The lecture was well-attended -- a whole busload of them had come down from Hull, the University’s former home -- and the crowd somewhat merry. Afterwards I signed and sold books, and went to the pub for a while with the die-hards. Great fun.
