I’m speaking with Jessica Mulligan at the Austin GDC next week. Our session is “Emerging Business Models Worldwide” on Wednesday at 11:00 AM. Unfortunately, there’s not much of a description on the site, but the talk will cover the major business models that we’ve seen for online games over the past few years. It’s mostly an analytical look at the business models, and the goal is to have lots of time for Q&A. Should be a fun session if you’re interested in how to make money without having to have WoW-sized subscriptions.
Note that updates to this blog might be a bit slow. Depends on how much I have to rant about after seeing various sessions, and how much cheap internet connectivity I can get. ;)
It’ll be interesting to see how the conference turns out this year. Since CMP, the lovely administrators of the GDC (and, oh, how I love the GDC) have taken over, it’ll be interesting to see if the conference remains useful. CMP is already starting out on the wrong foot; I’m not listed in the “preview” program book under the session. And, instead of focusing on my development record, they’ve put me as a writer for GamersInfo.net. Yes, ignore that silly other thing I might be known for. *sigh*
