the_logos will become famous soon enough
If you're going to be attending GDC (the annual Game Developer's Conference...www.gdconf.com), come to my panel and learn about how independent game developers manage to make money without a publisher. The panel is at noon on Friday the 7th of March, and is entitled, "Proven Strategies for Self-Publishing on the Internet: What Works and What Doesn't. " Panelists are myself, John Vechey, founder of Popcap.com, Gabe Zichermann, VP of Strategic Planning at Trymedia Systems, Joseph Varet, VP of Biz-dev at The Groove Alliance, and Daniel Hart, Senior Director of Games and Entertainment at Yahoo.

Incidentally, if you're someone looking to break into the games industry, GDC is a great place to get an idea of what being a professional developer is all about. The focus is on developers and development (as opposed to publishing and business, which E3 focuses on). I believe about 10,000 developers attend annually.

Terloch is on a distinguished road
Will the janitor of TechTV be there to once again proclaim "Achaea is the #1 mud on the 'net." as the mudconnector.com ad used to proclaim? Maybe I'll fly out there to get a quote to use from him too if he is!

Isn't it difficult to be so bitter all the time? I'd find it exhausting myself.
