We Interrupt This Blog For Awesomeness

I’m going to be busy for a while, so this blog won’t be as active. That’s not precisely where the awesome comes in though. The awesome bit is that I have recently been hired to do something exciting and new and game-related. A couple of weeks ago, I resigned from my somewhat dull job at one of the largest lobbying organisations in the United States, where I had been working for nearly two years. I will soon start work at a rather more interesting place, this time at a small company (related to videogames) which is owned by a large media conglomerate. I will also be moving from Northern Virginia to Northern California.

I won’t be blogging as much until I get moved in and settled in California (and get the internets set up at the new flat). If I do blog, it’s probably going to be short and possibly full of fluff and nonsense (not that this site is chock full of terribly cool insight that say, Terra Nova is full of). I am still alive and still reading most of my feeds and blogs when time permits.

Oh, and I won’t be able to go to the Game Developers Conference this year. Depending on a bunch of factors, I might be going to PAX, though. The only con that I definitely know I will attend is Otakon because I’m going to be working there, and because a promise was extracted from me. :P

EDIT – 14th March 2007: Looks like I won’t be attending Otakon this year. Due to the financial strain of moving, I’ll need to tighten my belt, and this means no travel (barring family obligations).

    Congrats and good luck! Let everyone know when you land safely.

    I forget – you flying or road tripping?

    One word: Awesome!

    Okay, we all know that I never use one word when more than twenty will do…

    That’s terrific, lady! I look forward to hearing all about the new position and company. Too bad we’ll not see each other at GDC this year, but I imagine we’ll run into each other sooner or later.

    Congrats! This is great news. I hope you can tell us more before long.

    Small company owned by a media conglomerate…it’s not IGN is it? :(

    I was wondering when you would get around to announcing this.

    Congrats, of course.

    Ah Brin, that’s great! You’ll love working with games, whatever it is your job entails. I wouldn’t ever want to work in any other industry.

    Thanks, everyone! :-D In general the job involves online communities/outreach and is all Web 2.0 and the like. The company is… Well, here is a hint: “Gaming simplified.”

    Josh: I’ll be flying out. I don’t really fancy driving across the country, and I really want to get familiar with the area as soon as I can.

    Troy: Nah, it’s not IGN.

    bigwig: Yes, I guess it is a real life ding!

    I meant to say congratulations long ago, but I suck. I’m so happy for you!

  12. 26 February 2007 at 10:37

    Thank you, 100littledolls. :D

    Congratulations! I too am looking into the gaming industry.

    I hope everything goes well for you, and you enjoy living in Cali.

    Thanks, Gunch. I hope you and your family are doing well. Say hello to Fynnicki and Ling for me. :) Best of luck on the game industry ambitions.
