So, PAX East has come and gone. I got to meet up with a lot of great folks, like my GameCritics compatriots Chi and Richard, Nels, Matthew, and the phenomenal Mattie, and to reconnect with folks I already knew like Chris, Serah, Eric, Dan, and (all too briefly) Alex and Grant. Also all the people I left out. Unfortunately the wifi at BCEC doesn’t work as well when there are a bajillion gamers rocking the joint as it did back when the biophysicists visited, so I was functionally cut off from Twitter.

Like several thousand gamers, I spent the past weekend at PAX East. It was great to finally meet a bunch of the people I regularly communicate with on Twitter, Wave, and other places. There really are too many to be named, so I won’t even try, but if I introduced myself to you at any point during the weekend it was because I felt it was a genuine pleasure to meet you, and I hope to see you again soon. Unfortunately, with the press of people and the absurdly long lines for some panels, I wasn’t able to hook up [Read more…]
