Gaming Symposium

I attended the gaming symposium last friday for a walk around and one speaker. I got a chance to see the set up (I liked the games on wach table) and the interactive stations by companies like Best Buy. I also stayed for Sandra Voelker's lecture. It was interesting to hear about how many people are involved in each game and how much detail goes into it. I thought it was neat that she went out and lived in San Francisco for two years to get to know the team and then was able to work from her home here in Minnesota. It gave me the idea to do that with a design firm so you know the people you are contacting each day yet you are able to work remotely. Overall a great show!
