A shameless plug to come see my panel at Gamesauce

I have been done the honor of being asked to be a panelist at the Gamesauce event next week, the one-day special that immediately precedes Casual Connect up in Seattle. Now, I know, for a number of you out there, the whole guest speaker thing is either old hat and you’re sick of it, or perhaps you’re just too busy to even attend anything other than GDC, or you might even just not care.

See, I’m not there just yet. I’ve been a card carrying member of the industry for about fifteen years now, but until more recently most of my gigs have been at smaller companies, startups, freelancing behind teh scenes, triage (OMG our game designer went to burning man whatarewonnadooooooo!) type positions. So until about two years ago my name never showed up anywhere, and if I listed the stuff (with a few exceptions) that I’d worked on, people would have scratched their heads and said Hunh? Or possibly googled me to be sure I wasn’t some sort of delusional gamer groupie.

So getting asked to be on a professional panel is nice, it’s validating in a way. And it does sound, presuming there’s a good run of Q and A, like it might be fun.

So if you’re up in Seattle, or attending the Casual Connect conference, come on in to the Gamesauce event as well and say HI (Your CC badge covers both events). Its got some great presentations, some excellent speakers there, and it looks like it might be a whole lot of fun at the same time.
