I’m at the Los Angeles convention center, waiting for the PDC keynote. The room is giant; there’s apparently seating for 7000 people!
Keynotes are usually a mixed bag, in my experience. Sometimes they’re pretty boring. But, as a buddy of mine observed, we’ve come all this way (and paid all this money). Might as well try to take it all in.
One cool feature – the huge screens at the front of the keynote room are displaying a continuous Twitter feed. Just mark your tweets with “PDC2008” and they’ll show up. Nice touch on the part of the organizers.
Another comment: PDC attendees are being given a hard drive this year with all of the samples and stuff. Unfortunately, they aren’t handing out the drives until after the last keynote, so we don’t get them until tomorrow afternoon. Bummer. Can’t wait to see what’s on it.
