DDJ's TechNetCast is currently playing Professor John Conway's presentation from the GDC 2002. Here's the summary from the site:

"Professor Conway, probably best known as the creator of the Game of Life, is responsible for a number of key results that have contributed to important advances in the field of Combinatoric Game Theory over the last decades. In this presentation, he discusses a number of these theories, and shows how they enable adults to excel at well-known children games, such as HARE-AND-HOUNDS, DOTS-AND-BOXES, PEG SOLITAIRE/HI Q, SPROUTS, etc. Applying these theories in computer AI is still an open problem."

The presentation is available as RealPlayer video, or MP3 audio.
