OAKHURST – Did you know that Oakhurst was once home to one of the world’s largest video game developers?
If you remember Sierra Entertainment or perhaps worked there or know someone who did, there’s a writer who would like to talk to you.
Laine Nooney, a media studies researcher and cultural historian of technology, will be visiting Oakhurst from Sept. 18 – 22. Nooney is writing a book about Sierra Entertainment (Sierra On-Line), a home entertainment software company which was headquartered in the region during the 1980s and 90s.
She is seeking to formally interview anyone who was associated with the company, or its owners, Ken and Roberta Williams, as part of her research on the company’s history.
