"An introduction to computer games: Why are they important to us all?"
by Andrew Pam

This talk will discuss why computer games are important to society and the economy, describe some of the different kinds of games and briefly discuss contributing to and developing games, followed by a workshop demonstrating some games that run on Linux. Feel free to bring laptops and ask for assistance installing and playing games on Linux. Audience: Everyone, even
(especially!) if you don't normally play games.

LUV would like to acknowledge Red Hat for their help in obtaining the Buzzard Lecture Theatre venue and VPAC for hosting, and BENK Open Systems for their financial support of the Beginners Workshops
