So damn slow!

I don't know what it is - if I have more stuff to cover, if I'm doing more things and thus have less time to devote to coverage... whatever it is though I'm feeling like I'm fighting an uphill battle getting all my GDC stuff online. It's getting a bit frustrating and I think I've gotten to the point where I have to start backing down or risk overworking myself and ending up sick in bed or something for the next few days.


So what that means is content will continue to go up most likely over the next week as well, although I have a feeling this is the same for just about everyone who went this year. I guess GDC is finally simply starting to get too big. I also think it's the damn Indie Games Summit. It was a hell of a lot easier to summarize a day-long tutorial that covered once topic versus 3-4 different lectures per day over a two-day period. Yea, that's a lot of stuff.

Okay so I guess I found my explanation, but I'm still a bit annoyed in general. It took me nearly 4 hours to post over 100 images to the galleries. What I wouldn't give for a photo upload tool like Facebook has (turns pleading eyes to superpig) but maybe next year we can have something like that. Really though I'd like to restructure our entire coverage interface - now that I'm attending more conferences I can get a better idea of how I want to do that.

Anywhoo, the coverage I did get up today is:

Choice Awards Photo Gallery
Expo Pictures
General Conference Pictures
Parties and Special Events - the IGDA VIP Luncheon (writeup forthcoming) and Suite Night
IGF Pavilion
Spreading Your Message as an Indie Developer

Under construction is:

GDCA and IGF awards review
IGDA VIP Luncheon
Emotive press event
More sessions and interviews

I wanted to post an entry about how I do my awards show coverage, but I guess that's going to have to wait until later.

Yeah, we'll have a nice image uploader by next year. There are plenty of applets and things out there.

You're doing a great job. Being at GDC myself (great to meet you there!) I know just how much stuff they cram into those few days.

Thanks Richard, I figured as much.

Sly! Thx for stopping by mate, it was a pleasure to meet you as well. Glad you're liking the coverage so far, be sure to tout it to your crew over in Queensland!
