I received a few press release to publish, but most of them aren't really related to game development. I will see if I can feature the other on the front page today. I also received the first gifts (from the fmx organization): a nice red bag, two DVDs (selected Stuttgart Media University student work + selected work from the Filmakademie Baden Wuertemberg) - and the conference schedule, a thick book of 280 pages with full details about the talks and the other conference events.
The real thing for me will begin this afternoon - as I told you yesterday (but I'm sure you weren't listening, were you?), I'm attending two reviews. The first one, entitled "Wb nOObs, u roxxor!" discuss World of Warcraft and will try to extrapolate its impact in terms of gaming and internet use. The second one, entitled "Second Life Rocks / Second Life Sucks", discuss the good and bads of Second Life - from the gameplay point of view.
I may also attend another review entitled "Web 2.0 - where the mass meets" which discuss the Web 2.0 phenomenon, what could be its future and its impacts on internet gaming.
After that, it's all pleasure: the SIGGRAPH projection takes place, then the opening gala (which is at the same time the closing gala of the ITFS; that's why it takes place after the end of the first conference day), and the opening party organized by NVidia.
And then, tomorrow will come [smile].
