CAX: It's official!

Not that anyone was doubting, but I am officially on the list :)

Just got this email:


We are working on finalizing the speakers for the show.  Below is a teaser list of who’s coming (subject to change):

Eugene Jarvis will return to CAX to discuss his legendary work in creating some of the greatest arcade games ever made.  Learn about Defender and his many other contributions to gaming.

Larry Rosenthal, creator of the Vectorbeam system, will be on hand to discuss his technical achievement and shed some light on the realities of his experience bringing it to the arcade.

Skit-B Pinball will discuss their creations and future plans.  You won't want to miss this seminar - they plan to raffle one of their creations to someone attending the presentation!

Matt Ownby will discuss Dexter, a project keeping classic laser games alive.

Roy "Mr. AWESOME" Shildt will discuss the game Missile Command, as will Dwayne Richard, who has created a documentary on proper play settings.

A panel of Sente employees will convene to discuss the history of the company.

PPM will be making their case for a pinball museum at the Alameda Carnegie Library.

Sunday, the Film Festival returns with Richie Knucklez, King of Arcades, a piece on Wade Krause's contributions to the FAILE BAST Deluxx Fluxx Arcade, and a number of shorts.

Also, I didn't know that Eugene Jarvis was gonna be there.  I definitely want to see what he has to say!
