Key Notes


Well, the DiGRA/FDG conference is now over. I quite enjoyed it: I met some old friends and made some new ones. It's not every conference where you can speak to a choreographer about people learning "the dance" in MMO boss fights.

My keynote yesterday went OK. I was a little worried about it because of the nature of the content (Theology) (I'll upload the slides when I get home so you can see what I mean), but this was one of the few audiences that was likely to take it in the spirit intended. No-one cornered me afterwards and set fire to me, anyway, and I received quite a few compliments.

The key formula for receiving compliments for keynotes, by the way, is: turn up and actully deliver the keynote (unlike the speaker on Tuesday); don't use video with sound on a system that translates all sound into machine-gun fire noises (unlike the speaker on Wednesday); speak the day before the person with a better keynote speaks (so I had a day of compliments before Jo Twist's presentation today made mine look so-so).

Now to make my way to the airport to fly back to Stansted in a plane made out of cardboard.
