More Event Info
Jonathan Ferguson is an Assistant Professor of Game Design and Production in The Game Studio at Champlain College. A technologist, Ferguson's diverse interests orbit the nexus of wireless communications, amateur radio, digital security, privacy, free libre open source software and hardware, game design and development, photography, and the deleterious consequences of surveillance capitalism. After working to build the Game Library for more than 10 years, Ferguson recently founded the Game History Teaching Collection Restoration Laboratory, which aims to preserve and provide access to the Game History Teaching Collection of Champlain's Game Studio. The Game History Teaching Collection has been built from the kind donations of many individuals over the years, including Greg Bemis, Amanda Crispel, Yenni Desroches, Alexander Ferguson, Jonathan Ferguson, Bernadette and Don Howard, Doreen and Brian Howell, Robert Mayer, Kristy Meiring, Hugues Ross, Eric Shore, Matt Surprenant, Paul Webster-Pact, Elaine Young and many others. Special thanks go to the staff of the Game History Teaching Collection Restoration Lab over the past nine years: Alex Cheff, Robert Christensen, Henry Chronowski, Christopher Foster, Ryan Hill, Parker Staszkiewicz, Paul Webster-Pact, Aiden Wright, and a number of volunteers.
