The Penny Arcade Expo, for those unfamiliar. Yep, that's right, we're crawling out of our little Escapist cave and venturing out among the people. Whitney Butts, our Lead Web Developer, and I will be making the long trek across the country to Bellevue, Washington ... and leaving at 5:30am to get there. I didn't know airports existed at 5:30am.
Anyway, we will be out and about at the Expo, highly-caffeinated on Saturday and then on Sunday, I'm delighted to participate in a panel on New Media, called "Blogphotopodcasting: New Media in the Game Industry." From the PAX website:
Join pioneers in the new media industry as they discuss how they're blazing the trail for mainstream news and how the mediums of the past are shaking in their boots. Panelists include Brian Crecente (Editor, Kotaku), Ashley Jenkins (Fragdolls.com), MC Wilson (Broadcast Gamer) and Julianne Greer (Editor, The Escapist) Moderated by Larry Hyrb (Microsoft).
Sounds like it's an interesting line-up and should be a good time. Stop by and say hello!
