I was one of 350 people chosen to be a Conference Associate at the Game Developers Conference next month (18 – 22 February) in San Francisco. I did not attend the GDC in 2007 because I was busy moving across the country, however I was a CA at GDC 2006.
The CA army will be wearing fluorescent pink shirts this year. I believe they chose pink for the CA shirts to match the GDC 2008 colour scheme. It will be interesting to see how the CAs, the majority of whom are young males, deal with it. I suspect that many will loudly and frequently proclaim that they are so secure in their masculinity, they can wear pink without feeling threatened.
If you’re going to the GDC, perhaps I’ll see you there. I’ll definitely be attending (or working at) several panels, so you may find me in the audience or helping with room logistics.
I’m planning on attending a few parties/social gatherings in the evenings that week. Right now I have Wednesday and Thursday tentatively booked. I am, of course, interested in hearing where the good parties are, so feel free to let me know (or get me in).
