Dublin was great. Good friends, good places, got in some cricket-watching at TCD, stopped by Devitts (briefly, but did it at least—missed the session) and even got the bus down to UCD for the day. For FoWA, actually. Which was pretty great. I’ve gotta go over the pages of notes I took on the talks and digest them a bit, but there were some really interesting things said, some advice and admonitions, some interpretations of trends, and some analyses of what this whole “cloud” malarkey actually means.
I hope to get back sooner this time. Three years is too long. Thing is, Dublin is the right size, and Ireland is the right size. As Aoife put it, “you meet one gamer in this country, you meet them all.” More thoughts on this later, if I remember.
