Got back from the Game Developer's Conference last night. Mostly hung out with people from the game jam (that is, my existing friends and people I knew from there). Met Chris Buetcher from Bungie. Met Andrew Stern who's working on Facade, which should be of great interest to interactive fiction people--a serious attempt at a "drama manager"--i.e. a dungeon master AI.
Collected eight business cards. Was asked for them three or four times--I'll have to make some next year.
Spent $120 on motel room, a $25 dinner, a $20 dinner, two McDonald's dinners, and not much else, so probably a reasonable tradeoff.
