Damn, was I ever hit by the nasty flu bug that seems to be making its way through Seattle this week. I’ve always found the worst part of getting sick is the accompanying feeling of uselessness. What the hell did I even get done these past couple days? While I wasn’t aching and sleeping I was reading Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs biography. I recently got to the part about Jobs’s “reality distortion field,” or his ability to bend other peoples’ conception of what’s possible to his will. Meanwhile, just to make myself feel even more lousy, I’ve been following the articles about the incoming Trump administration and “potential grizzlies.” Add a couple capsules of Excedrin PM to the mix and reality does indeed begin to look distorted.
But back in base reality, I didn’t want the week to go by without mentioning a few upcoming events. Kicking off tomorrow night at Indies workshop is the Global Game Jam. If you’re in the mood to spend the weekend bringing your game idea to fruition, this looks to be a can’t-miss event.
Next week, on Thursday the 26th, is another Seattle VR meetup. It’ll be at Pluto VR in Ballard. I’ve always found these meetups to be friendly and welcoming. The theme of this meetup is New Year, New VR Friends.
Starting to feel groggy…
