WebWalker is back from a little nap. Here’s some things to spruce up your Friday morning.
Best news so far this year, Stanford University’s Henry Lowood has taken over the IGDA Preservation SIG, which aims to finally work towards preserving the history of video games. For me personally, this is the most important thing happening in the museum realm today. He’s also heading a panel at Game Developer’s Conference entitled “Ten Games You Need to Play”. –Brent
- Speaking of video games, word has come down that musical mastermind Brian Eno will be producing the soundtrack for Spore. Or, rather, he’ll be designing the algorithm that generates the music for Spore. I was excited about this game before, but now I can feel like I’m getting a real cultural experience when I waste away my hours in it. [via CDM]
- If you were at Piotr’s lecture last night, he mentioned a few sites that contain his work. His first site is The Spleen, but you’ll want to head directly to Inward Vessels or Outward Vessels, since the main page doesn’t seem to be working right now. Secondly there is Simple Math at simplemath.mcad.edu. To listen to and download the work of the labor camp, head to laborcamp.mcad.edu. And finally, don’t forget his work in Gallery 9, which is extensive.
