So both yesterday evening and Friday evening I hung out with cool folks, mostly the fine peeps at the University of Utah’s comm department. A whole bunch of them are doing games research, including World of Warcraft research. Seeing that level of joviality and collegiality among profs and grad students alike is amazing. I can’t imagine hanging out with any of my profs like that. At a few points, they tried to convince me to ditch UW and move to Utah. 🙂
Cassandra asked me to mention that Holly and Sabryna want to get married, adopt Hector, and treat him as a baby love slave. Whatever. Hector would be nice to have around for his wine wrangling skillz.
I also met up with Sara Grimes (and told her about Jen’s research) and then somehow tagged along with her and whole bunch of people and got to meet Marci, Richard, Florence, and Kelly (and some others who I’ve already forgotten… 🙁 ).
