Hi Michelle,

Would it be an idea to have an msn meeting this week to brainstorm
over some ideas?
I haven't really given GDC any thoughts apart from my "outburst" after
the previous GDC since I am mostly focusing on research into game

For myself I only see a role as a contributer to the GDC expo unless I
might be able to contribute something to the audio topic with the SL
voice client. My students will submit our one button shooter to the
IGF competition which will hopefully make it to the IGF awards.

Cheers Eelke
