We (Elvis and I) are about to head out the door for GDC 2011. I am psyched to get back to gaming, especially the technical aspects of today’s games. There’s a nexus between massive scalable global gaming and building massively scalable infrastructure and security it. Two of the things I love are converging. It’s very exciting to a geek like me.
I wrote about what I’m looking forward to at GDC 2011 on the LMGPR Lounge blog and it went live today.
