Interactive Fiction Technology Foundation Welcomes Liza Daly and Graham Nelson

Cambridge, Massachusetts, 3 August 2018—The Interactive Fiction Technology Foundation (IFTF) proudly welcomes two new additions to its roster of advisors and directors.

Liza Daly will join IFTF’s board of directors. Liza is a software engineer, startup founder, and technology executive who specializes in digital publishing and web-based storytelling. She founded ifMUD, an early, influential chatroom for the IF community, and has authored several parser and hypertext games including the XYZZY Award-winning Harmonia.

Graham Nelson will join the IFTF advisory committee. Graham is a fellow in pure mathematics at St. Anne’s College of the University of Oxford, but the IF community recognizes him chiefly as the inventor and ongoing lead developer of Inform (as well as the author of Curses, an acclaimed text adventure that debuted Inform to the world). Inform helped catalyze interactive fiction out of its post-commercial dormancy in the 1990s, and continues to serve as a centrally important tool for countless authors creating new work.
