Here is my speech for the Zak’s Appreciation Party. The party is part of the anniversary events taking place this month(February).
Hello, I’m Jamie (also known as “HeritageNightGuy.”) I do a series of events called “Heritage Night.” At Heritage Nights, I talk about the game’s history. I have covered such topics as “OHBot – a computer controlled avatar” and “the creation of authorized hacking zones”.
Heritage Night was started by another explorer for the same purpose as it’s used today.
I took over Heritage Night in 2013. At that time, it had been dead for a while. I got the idea when I mentioned OHBot in “Myst: The Comedy Text Adventure” and people did not know who he was. I then realized that I had seen things that others had not. Remembering a Heritage Night I had attended, I announced my first event. It was going to be called History Night and I was going to talk about my first experience in MOULa in 2010. I was contacted by Calum, the previous administrator and was told I could use the name and website Heritage Night.
I have done many events since then; some turned out better than others, with my best events involving authorized hacking.
From the beginning, I have tried to make my events unique. I did this by using authorized hacking to demonstrate things or by having unique special guests like OHB, the creator of the computer controlled avatar. Lastly, I have tried to have a unique perspective on things and tell stories.
Thanks for listening. More information on Heritage Night can be found here: https://heritagenight.wordpress.com/. You can also catch up on past events there. To find out when the next event is, check the events section of the forums. We will now begin the Q and A.

(02/12 13:40:27) Emor D’ni Lap: copy that
(02/12 13:40:39) JamieM(2.0): Acctually it was a fairly simple idea to use the hood to talk about why it was created. Since after it was created there was talk about useing it for evetns.
(02/12 13:41:03) Emor D’ni Lap: now I’m confused
(02/12 13:42:12) Calum Traveler: way back when HN first was designed, Carl Palmner wanted to use magic hoods for certain events,
(02/12 13:42:32) Calum Traveler: but he never got a chance to work out the hows, and i never got a chance either
(02/12 13:42:36) JamieM(2.0): Thanks Calum I was getting confused trying to explain it.

(02/12 13:42:45) Hummingbird: we could only do magic in a private setting.
(02/12 13:42:54) JamieM(2.0): I basically took his idea and got it to work
(02/12 13:43:14) Calum Traveler: *nods* if Carl were active, im sure he’d love that
