Preserving the memories

A new initiative has started within the IGDA Preservation SIG – we’re looking to put up memorials about for industry developers. This is to help preserve history of the people working in the videogame industry, as well as players and important people related to the industry.

It’s currently just starting, but if you know any people who should be listed, you can contact me or the Preservation SIG to have them added – eulogies and information are both very much welcome. It’s important to keep the information somewhere easy to find. While we don’t have the resources to document everyone in the industry like Mobygames attempts to, we can keep a good list of those who have passed on, and save the memories that people have of them for posterity.
