Went to the SIEGE convention in Atlanta from Oct 5-7. Didn’t realize it but Georgia, and Atlanta in particular, has quite an indie game community. I saw some fascinating indie games and met some really talented folks with great ideas - and thanks to conventions like this, they have an outlet for their ideas. I sat on a few audio panels and chatted with some of the coolest and most talented audio artists that I’ve ever met. Audio is essentially an isolated art, and I forget how important it is to get out there and mingle with other like-minded audio guys and gals. It reminded me, after years at a giant corporation, that there really is an audio “community” out there, and it’s healthy to get involved.
