Alex Handy is the founder and director of The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment (The MADE). Located in Oakland, CA, the MADE is the only all-playable video game museum in the world. The MADE is the first dedicated video game museum open to the public in the United States. The collection houses over 5,300 playable games. The MADE is dedicated to the preservation of video game history, and to educating the public on how video games are created.
The MADE recently made headlines with their request for an exemption to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act for old defunct online worlds – we ask Alex about that effort as well as the mission of The MADE.
