Day 4 - In which I had breakfast with Susan, lunch with Jane, a meeting with the VICE board, drinks with Lina, and went to dinner with Julian + EIS reunion.
I had breakfast with Susan Gold, but mysteriously didn't take any photos of it despite that the breakfast buffet at Marriott which we enjoyed was beautiful.
I caught a talk on by Tobiah Marks about indie development, and got some good tidbits from it. For example, it can take time to make an indie endeavour profitable, so don't give up.
When I passed the IGDA booth, Anne was there, checking in on her hearts. They were doing well.
Gillian was there too, and had already made extensions to the ribbons on her badge.
I had lunch with Jane Pinckard in the park, but again, strangely, did not photograph her, nor the food.
In the afternoon I had planned to check out the LostLevels event, but suddenly all the founding members of VICE (Virtual Institute of Computational Expression) that was on site converged, so we decided to have a meeting. Here we are, all except Mark Nelson and Mike Cook, who weren't at the conference:
Then I met up with Lina Eklund, who is doing a guest researcher stint at Berkley, and came into town. She had been at LostLevels, and said that the first hour had been excellent, when those who hade prepared their 5-minute spiels had presented.
We all needed more margaritas, so after having popped into the GuildHall Mixer we went back to Chevy's. The silliness of the selfie stand there was irresistible to Ben and Mike T:
We also had food.
