Just a quick remindr that the Austin Game Conference is coming up in September.  I had a good time at it last year and can highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys GDC (and/or thinks GDC is too big).

Well, if you're a professional and you're trying to get your company to pay for it and book your travel and reservations, it's not uncommon to plan such trips up to a year in advance.  And often it takes months of repeated pestering of your HR people to actually get everything arranged.  Many a hotel room has been lost because someone sits on your request for too long before trying to make a reservation...

The places near larger events like GDC and E3 fill up months in advance.  Something like Austin Game Conference, probably not.  But still, it's good to plan ahead.

I lost out on Cebit due to every hotel room within a 100 mile radius being booked - I am allready now buttering up the boss for CES 2005 with E3 being a lost cause...

Agreeing with SB is the final sign of the apocalypse, right?!

I would like to discuss this more with you, but I'm not allowed to post in Politics anymore.

Err, first of all it's 5 months, and secondly -- I personally like to plan things ahead sometimes.  Especially conferences like that, and especially if you have to make travel arrangements (which I don't).

As for the conference itself, sounds pretty cool.  I'm definitely going to look into going.  It's on my birthday weekend too, w00t.  FrEe pHaT lEwTz plz?
