So I just got this email:
Don Rawitsch, one of the original inventors of the Oregon Trail
computer game is coming to MIT and giving a talk about the game:
When: 5:30 pm this Friday (4/21)
Where: Dining room of Pika (69 Chestnut Street)
I don’t know how many of you had the luxury of playing this game in elementary school on those good ol’ 3.5″ floppy disks, but I did =)
Unfortunately, I won’t be able to make it to the event, BUT I will be at a formal on the 33rd floor of a building in downtown Boston.
The tradeoff isn’t too shabby.
