A Table Through the Forest

I really like our office. But the only thing that keeps me from spontaneously combusting in envy when looking at this place is the thought that an office full of living trees probably has constant bug problems. (via Core77)

GDC 2009.

I wanted to post more during the conference about all the great stuff I saw and people I heard from, but I’m not as young as I used to be, so it’s getting harder for me to spend all day attending panels, spend all night attending parties, and still find the energy to post blog entries as I go.

New job, new diet.

As they say, necessity is the mother of sandwiches.

Time to recharge.

Yesterday was my last day at Secret Level.

GDC 2008: Friday: Narrative control, ranting, happiness.

Notes from the end of GDC 2008.
