Join us for a talk by Jonathan "Seamus" Blackley, an American video game designer who is best known for designing and creating the Xbox in 2001.

Seamus Blackley has collaborated creatively and technically with the likes of  Steven Spielberg and Bill Gates. Trained as a jazz musician and a theoretical physicist, he worked on projects from discovering the top quark to launching Guitar Hero.

Blackely also wrote the proposal and formed the decision of Microsoft to create the Xbox twenty years ago.
