Well, I had to push the decision back and back and back… but it looks like I won’t be able to attend the AIIDE conference this year. I had been planning on doing it and was really looking forward to it as well. However, a combination of factors ranging from family to business (to the fact that my Cubs will probably will be in the World Series that week) are going to prevent me from attending.
Not only will I miss the tons of valuable material that is going to be presented there, I was looking forward to meeting and having conversations with a number of my peers. I will certainly see most of them at the GDC next March, though!
