i just got back from two of the busiest and most wonderful weeks in my life, touring in new york and chicago to promote my book, RISE OF THE VIDEOGAME ZINESTERS. i am currently TAKING IT EASY and reacclimatizing to a life where i don’t need to prepare a speech for every day, but i want to leave this here as an artifact or souvenir of my tour: it’s a recording of my talk at dorkbot chicago, taped and edited by the upstanding jake elliot, who was my gracious and incredibly generous host in chicago (a pretty cool town, by the way). this is a pretty good recording (an hour long) because it includes not only my reading but also all the excellent questions that everyone asked. and if there’s one thing that characterized my tour, it’s my delight with all of the smart questions people have asked me.
in a few weeks i hope to release an updated version of DUCK DUCK POISON, the four-player game i ran at my show with babycastles, and a few weeks after, that, maybe, to go back on tour. i’m planning the boston / toronto / montreal phase of my tour with the money you’ve all generously given me.
