‘Appreciation Party’ speech

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 13:40:39)  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 13:42:12)  Calum Traveler: way back when HN first was designed, Carl Palmner wanted to use magic hoods for certain events,

(02/12 13:42:45)  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
