Just got back from Freeplay. I think my talk went relatively well; had a painfully dry throat until some event organiser kindly brought me a bottle of water, and it took the audience a little while to warm up, but we eventually got there. I got through all the topics I wanted to cover, and I don’t think I made myself look too silly in the process. :)
Paul Callaghan’s crowd-sourced “unKeynote” concept seemed to be a huge success. I’d like to be the first one to call for its return in future Freeplays, even if funding is available to bring in a more traditional keynote speaker.
Anyhow, I’ll be back at FreePlay again tomorrow, just listening to sessions. And tonight? Tonight I’ll probably play some Bastion, before getting some early sleep.
