I’ve been asked to participate in the Xfire debate on censorship in games. This is from the official website for the debate:
On April 26th, 2007 at 4pm EDT (1pm PDT), Xfire will host the fourth session of the Xfire Debate Club: The Two-Handed Sword with special guests from the worlds of gaming and politics.
At the Xfire Debate club, industry insiders, experts, and hardcore gamers battle for the final say on your favorite gaming topics.
My fellow debatees are:
- California Senator Leeland Yee
ECA CEO Hal Halpin
Dennis McCauley of Gempolitics.org
and Dan Isett
The debate is open to the public, so I encourage you to join. It starts at 4:00 p.m. ET, and you can join by clicking a button on the website.
I’m not sure how it’s going to go, but I seem to be all set up. I was embarrassingly 20 minutes late to the “dry run” yesterday due to having been ill for the past 48 hours and subsequently losing track of time catching up on email. Hopefully I’ve regained enough of my wits to give these so-called “important people” a run for their money. Wish me luck.
