“The breadth of video game development” (working title)

John Davison, Executive Vice President of Content at GamePro

Date: Tuesday, February 23rd
Time: 2:00pm
Place: Digital Media Theater, UCSC
Hosted By: Chris Lewis, Noah Wardrip-Fruin

This lecture is free and open to the public, but visitors should purchase a parking pass from the visitor kiosk at the main entrance. There they can also provide a map showing the best parking for the Digital Media Theater.

I’m very pleased to announce John Davison will be coming down to UC Santa Cruz to give a talk on the wider business models in video games. He’s been in the video game journalism industry for almost twenty years, working his way up from magazines in the UK all the way to Executive Vice President of content at GamePro (stopping off at Ziff-Davis and founding What They Play along the way).

This promises to be a great talk, so don’t miss it!
