I’m sitting here at EA basking in the gaming atmosphere. Today is the Women In Games conference spotlighting Games for profit for Women. I’m botching the title of the thing, but the gist of it is there.
I’m blown away by the number of gaming stations, ginormous flatscreens and comfy chairs here at EA, and quite frankly, I’m overwhelmed at the size of the campus. Getting here wasn’t easy, as this southern gal had quite a time navigating the BART and Caltrain, but I’m here now and I’m having a blast.
Because I am getting to escort the panelists to the green room, I’ve had a chance to quickly meet some of the female rockstars of the gaming world, and I’ve been amazed so far at what some companies (Microsoft and Linden Labs, to name a few) are doing for female gamers.
Tomorrow I’m off to GDC, and will spend most of my time either bugging people for an interview or manning the WIGI booth, so if you are there please look me up. My cell is 540-797-1423 and I answer it sporadically.
