Jesse Schell to Deliver LOGIN Keynote

Evergreen Events have announced that Jesse Schell will deliver a keynote speech at the 2009 LOGIN Conference titled "Make Games Not War" focusing on the potential influence, both positive and negative, that violent games could have on society.

Evergreen Events is delighted to announce the Thursday, May 14th keynote speaker for the 2009 LOGIN Conference. Jesse Schell, the accomplished Professor of Entertainment Technology at Carnegie Mellon University and CEO of Schell Games, will be delivering a lunch keynote address explaining the complicated relationship between interactive entertainment, violence, culture and sociology. The 2009 LOGIN Conference will be held May 11th-14th 2009 in Seattle, Washington at the fantastic Seattle Marriott Waterfront Hotel, as an innovative event designed to facilitate education, networking, and entertainment for the leaders of the business and development online game industry.

In his keynote, "Make Games Not War", Mr. Schell will discuss how "it is very possible that widespread online games are changing people, and therefore, society, in subtle ways. But how? Will the constant playing of war games train us all to be killers, or will the cooperation these games require break down cultural barriers, and teach us to get along with strangers? Or both? This talk examines the paradoxical futures that online gaming may bring us, and makes some suggestions about how to use them to save humanity from itself."
