Two upcoming dates this week for the JET LAMP tour.
First, I’m at GOOGLE CHICAGO tomorrow (Thursday, October 20th), at an open-to-the-public event which includes free pizza and soft drinks. If you’re in the Chicago area and can get over there (20 W. Kinzie St, 8th floor) for 5:30-6pm, this is the big local event. Full details are at the Chicago Interactive Fiction Group site. A few of the interviewees are likely to be there.
Second, I’m at the Mastics-Moriches-Shirley Community Library in Shirley, NY (that’s on Long Island) on Friday (October 21st). They’re at 407 William Floyd Parkway in Shirley and the show starts at 7pm. Here’s the library information page on the showing. Of course, it’s also open to the public.
I have a showing at the Plaistow Public Library in Plaistow, NH which I’ll mention next week, and some fun dates down in Maryland for November.
After that, it gets sparse. It may mean the end of the tour.
A few people are contacting me about future dates, and believe me, I love nothing more than visiting a room of people watching GET LAMP and then discussing it with them afterwards, but I can’t afford to fly myself to too many locations (unless I’m doing other stuff there and/or am reimbursed or otherwise have it be a huge location with a lot of folks showing up). So it’s touch and go as to what happens after that date. I’m able to drive pretty easily in the Northeast US, of course, and a few people are looking into stuff there.
So feel free to contact me about showings and I’m always up for discussions. At some point, I will write a massive wrap-up of the whole event. It was a fine experiment, and a success.
See you soon, Chicago, Shirley, Plaistow, Maryland.
