I started at a new position in San Francisco working for Nokia. My move is part of my continued pursuit of high availability, fault tolerant servers with cutting edge technology.

Unfortunately Gods And Heroes got cancelled. All my platform work isn't really specific to any particular MMO though, so it will help BioWare with their MMO that is still in development. Hopefully, Star Trek Online will have more success than Gods And Heroes.

I left Perpetual Entertainment after finishing all of my Platform/Game integration work for the ship of the MMORPG "Gods And Heroes" to work at Sony Imageworks! I am really looking forward to watching these amazing Sony films on the big screen!

Got to GDC 2007 with a classic pass (this time with just walking a couple of blocks). Was a lot of fun going to the lectures and panels. AI, Physics, and the PS3 talks were very interesting.

Today I was able to take a tour, go to a few classes, and view a few short films at Pixar. The experience itself was really surreal and interesting. I was able to do this through a donation to the Emery Ed Fund.

I enjoyed getting an inside peek at the Pixar culture, art, and modus operandi. Very, very, cool.

This marks the end of my journey from Upper Michigan (next to Canada) to San Francisco, California in a small 2 door Toyota Tercel with 1 hairy cat. One of those things that is sort of fun, but sort of not.

Unfortunately, I was unable to report much of anything at GDC during the actual event. However, it was an amazingly interesting event with very in-depth sessions. The exhibits at the expo were really neat too, tons of various companies that make all the various video games possible were present at the booths or as visitors to the expo.

It probably would have been better in San Francisco, where it is usually, but San Jose is a nice area. I am hoping to find out next year :)

I am attending the 2006 Game Developers Conference. I will try and update my blog with interesting information from the conference as it is happening. GDC is an amazing event and I hope to check out as many of the booths as possible.

I have been working on Planeshift, a Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG) that is still in development. It is available to play for free and uses the free Crystal Space game engine.
