Gah, didn't realize he got me on camera. Thought I'd just be a disembodied voice.
GDC was an awesome event to attend. No, it wasn't an E3 deal with product launches and game demos every 5 minutes, but it was a great opportunity to meet face-to-face with our peers in the industry. Putting faces to the names and email addresses that fly back and forth across my inbox was great. Being all the way out in Michigan when much of the industry is on the west coast makes it hard to get to meet these people, so events like GDC are key.
Though I wasn't there very long (flew in Wed morning, out Thurs night), I was able to meet a lot of great people. The highlight was definitely the GDC TweetUp. There are some really nice folks doing indie game dev work out in the Boston, MA area, and the GamerDNA folks were a pleasure to talk to too.
