Get Lamp Screening in Portland, OR

The Get Lamp Tour stops in Portland, OR at the Portland Commodore Users Group - If you live in the Portland area or know someone who does, here's some information on the event.

PDXCUG GetLamp Screening

The Portland Commodore Users Group (PDXCUG.org) is proud to present a night with Jason Scott, a digital historian and archivist who specializes in early microcomputer history and dial-up bulletin board systems. He is the webmaster of textfiles.com, a collection of BBS-era textfiles that has been open to the public since 1998. In 2001, he began filming a documentary about BBSes called "BBS: The Documentary", an 8-episode mini-series about BBSes spanning 25 years and totalling five and a half hours in length.

Now, Jason has a new film about text adventure games (think Zork), called "Get Lamp". He interviewed dozens of creators, players, and scholars about the experience and effect of text adventures in this documentary and is willing to share his adventure with you at this very special event, brought to you by the Portland Commodore Users Group. So pick up the coin, "Go North", then "Go West" because we'll be gathering at Backspace in old town Portland, Oregon (115 NW 5th Ave.) on Sept. 9, 2010 @7:00 p.m.
