Reports from Entertainment Gathering 2006
Some of the coverage:
- The LA Weekly has the best overview of the event...including Groening begging Wurman to hold another EG
- Forbes writes about some of the musicians who were there, including Herbie Hancock, Yo-Yo Ma, and Island Records founder Chris Blackwell
- The Washington Post focused on games (like what Sims creator Will Wright is up to, and a preview of the forthcoming Godfather game), and the idea that players/audiences will be taking a more active role in their entertainment
- ZDNet talks about the impromptu wedding of Bill Nye the Science guy and his fiancee, oboe player Blair Tindall, which apparently took place at EG. John Underkoffler (a tech consultant for movies like `Minority Report') showed off actual gloves that he has helped design for manipulating data just like Tom Cruise did in the movie.
- News.com's coverage focuses entirely on gaming.
- Entrepreneur Brian Dear seems like one of the few people to have blogged about EG.
