Interesting News: My speech now has an official time and room! Room 2007, Friday at 9am
Firstly, that room is awesome.
...and really big...
...and I'm super psyched that the GDC guys think that my speech is going to be that interesting.
However, the big lesson from GDC'08 for me was that you need to plan out your nights more than your days. On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights, all the big publishers will be throwing huge parties late into the night, which in return is causing some realisations to dawn in my head:
- Many people will be drunk or asleep at 9am, making this room harder to fill
- I may be drunk or asleep at 9am, making this speech harder to give
So, reader, let's make a deal. I'll speak a little slower and quieter, and ask the lighting guy to turn down the lights a bit, if you show up at 9am and recover while hearing about Rock Band stuff. On top of that, I promise to show up sober, answer hard questions after the speech, and - if you're lucky - show up in clean clothes and a cleanly shaven face.
