Back from CGDC conference in Tampere, Finland. It was an excellent conference with lots of different perspectives on computer games. Hopefully, there will be a future follow up. All the keynote speakers (Greg Costikyan, Eric Zimmerman, and Warren Spector) had very interesting and thought-provoking things to say about computer games.
