Summer IF gathering in Boston, Sept 14-15

As in years past, the People’s Republic of Interactive Fiction is organizing a summer gathering of the IF folks of the world. If you are interested in hanging out and talking about IF, you are invited!

The weekend: September 14-15. The locale: Boston (the MIT area).

Once again, we will be gathering at NoShowConf, a tiny little indie game-dev conference. We will also have a presence at the Boston Festival of Indie Games, which runs the same weekend.

Has there been much interest in this? I’m considering going but trying to decide between this and some other activities, given a limited budget.

The list of NoShowConf speakers is now up:

It includes Chris Klimas, Juhana Leinonen, Deirdra Kiai, and Anna Anthropy. So that’s some IF-related people, at minimum.

We are in the process of organizing a public IF reading/playing (Lost Pig) which will take place at BostonFIG.

The show is in less than two weeks, so I’m bumping this.

The NoShow schedule is up: . IF-related talks on both the 14th and the 15th.

We’ll be presenting Lost Pig at the BostonFIG show (Saturday the 14th, 3pm-5pm, MIT Stratton Student Center, 3rd floor coffeehouse). We’ll also host an IF table in the FIG exhibition hall all day. (Which is where I’ll be, probably.)

I don’t suppose any of the talks will be recorded, will they? Sounds awesome, but Atlantic Ocean and all that…

I’ve added this to the calendar I recently set up If anybody writes any of the sessions up, let me know and I’ll add a link. (And let me know if there are any other events I should add there)

The Lost Pig event will be recorded. I don’t know if NoShow has recording planned, but they did ustream last year.

Forgot to add: in Lost Pig, Grunk and the Gnome will be portrayed by the talents of Tom Russell and Brad Smith, of the Post-Meridian Radio Players.
