Over a Decade on GameDev.net! Wow!

I came back to this site on a whim recently. In fact, I had forgotten this blog even existed. I don't come here often anymore, because I've been quite busy as of late.

Still, GDNet has a special place. It's where I first learned about matrices, for example. Without it, I may never of had the interest to pursue my undergraduate degree, and study math/physics/CS as seriously as I have.

Years later, I may not be going into game development as a career, but I have a pretty nice Silicon Valley job nonetheless. But maybe one day I'll accept a job offer in the field, and do some interesting things there. Exciting times, in any case.

If you asked me 10 years ago if I would ever achieve what I have, I would probably have said, "Of course!" Such is the naivety of youth. I appreciate the enormity of the task better now. Still, if not for the inspirations then, many of which can be traced back to here, I may not have persevered as I did.

I'm happy to see the site is still quite active, and within its members, I hope there are many more successes taking shape.

Awesome to hear!   Thanks for coming back around.. it's pretty shocking how many game developers have used the site at some point or another.
