A quick take

Well I'm halfway through today's afternoon sessions and things are going pretty well. The auto-balancing talk was rather so-so, but after lunch I attended Bill Fulton's talk on fighting cheating and griefing in online games and it was really good. I gave him my card and will be talking to him to hopefully get an article or few off him further on the subject, because he had a lot of good things to say. A LIVE talk is just wrapping up now, and I have another LIVE session in the next room after this (update: oooh, it was a session detailing the new Windows LIVE service), then a talk about broadband issues, and then the networking dinner/party.

I must say I'm very pleased so far with this conference, I think they've done a fantastic job of it so far. I never considered the benefits of a small conference versus a large one like GDC, which until now is the only conference I've ever attended (tho I've attended it multiple times). I talked to Brian Robbins a bit after lunch and although I ate elsewhere he said the lunch they served was hands down better than anything at GDC :P They took good care of us press people too, I'll post a swag pic later tonight. I haven't run into many people so far, besides the speakers I know, but we'll see if I bump into any more familiar faces at the party tonight.

There's also a small expo, I'll be checking that out during Lunch tomorrow. I'm surprised I've managed to find sessions of interest for pretty much every hour every day. Lots of good stuff coming in my final report.

That's all for now, I'll post once more later tonight.
