Too much good stuff at GDC goes unreported on the textual internet, and as we all know: if Google can’t see it, then it never happened.


/unmount soapbox

But I’ll keep protesting until Google starts Speech-to-Text’ing every conference as a matter of course…

By: ladyophelea Mon, 03 Mar 2008 22:08:00 +0000 As press who attended and has attended for 6-7 years, I hope not. With E3 nebulous it has turned into a mini-E3.

I used to send staff and require they attend session so they would be educated and could review/interview intelligently.

This year, due to money constraints and the terrible timing, I was the ONLY person from my site there the entire time. (I had two people who were there for half a day and only to see product.)

I never opened a session guide much less attended a session and this is 2 years running.

I no longer hope I can review intelligently; I only hope I can write intelligently.

I mean less attendance from media outlets generally men guys like me don’t get the full scoop. I mean if a low level journalist manages to score a few emotional minutes with a prominent developer it’s better than something like Joystiq popping in there with scripted questions, no? hmm… I’m gonna cut this before it gets too long…oh and by the way, this is Max, I met you at the lecture you gave at SCAD.

Like you said, I think the press should have to pay to attend GDC.

By: David McGraw Fri, 29 Feb 2008 03:41:00 +0000 I just noticed that there were 18,000 people at the GDC this year… Probably around 1,200 press. Can you even imagine what the GDC will look like in 5 – 10 years? O_o! Madness.
