So I’ll be in Seattle this week, Monday night to Thursday night, attending the ION Conference, which was called OGDC last year.

I’m going to be part of two panel discussions. The first is on Wednesday at 9AM, Changing a Live Game: Lessons Learned and Techniques Applied. I’ll be on the panel with Jason and Steve from 38 Studios, as well as Scott Hartsman who I met for the first time at IMGDC in March. Also on the panel is Osma Ahvenlampi, who I’ve never met before but is the CTO at Sulake (the Habbo Hotel guys). I’ll be talking about using metrics to inform your changes to a live game.

The second panel is about metrics, called Tuning the Money Funnel: Customer and Process Metrics in Online Games. Larry Mellon is moderating–if you didn’t know, he gave a seminal presentation on metrics for MMOs back at GDC 2003. He was pretty much the only name in metrics when I started doing that stuff. Also on the panel is Marty Poulin who I’ve known from GDC for a long time. This’ll be my first time doing something “official” with him. Brian Hafer is rounding it out, and I’ve never met him so I’m looking forward to meeting him as well.

If you’re in Seattle and want to meet up, drop me a line and I’ll see what I can do!
