SOE Fan Faire 2007

It's 2AM, and I don't know why I'm still up after being at Fan Faire for the past few days. I guess I'm pumped up in a way, so glad to see that the fruits of our labor are starting to be revealed to people.

There is nothing more energizing than meeting enthusiastic people who love your work.

This year went pretty well, especially for the panels, which I was pretty happy with. Normally our panels are pretty much just Q&A sessions, but this year Gallenite asked all of us to come up with a mini presentation each that we could speak about when we started each panel.

I had some ideas in mind for what I wanted to say, but I actually just winged it for the most part, because I roll like that.

I'll probably take the time and write out something more extensive than this little post, but I just wanted to take a moment and thank all of the players of games that SOE makes, especially my EverQuest II friends. Every year I am reminded how great our players are, and how fun everyone is. I just can't get over how friendly everyone is to me. I just can't help but feel so grateful and fortunate to work on such a great game and have such great players. I don't know what I did right, but I wish I could bottle it and put it up for sale. It just feels awesome to feel this appreciated.

I'm glad to hear everything went well in Vegas! Sorry I couldn't get up there this time around.

..and of course you're appreciated because you're doing a great job man!

..and appreciation does come in a bottle.. it's called "Guinness" :)

..unless it comes in a cup, in which it case I like to call it "Coffee" :)

Nick
