Awesome list! Thank you for sharing this with us Marco!

Don't forget Game Politics and GamesIndustry.biz. Furthermore, it might be more clear if you label Tiny Subversions as Darius Kazemi's Networking Advice (Tiny Subversions).

Marco Roy 09-13-2008 04:07 PM

Done, thanks Adrir!

Heh, I like how I'm valuable, but not quite invaluable. :)

Gshonk 09-26-2008 10:40 AM

Hahah, I would mark you as invaluable, your advice helped me stick out at GDC and meet a ton of people. Including you though I never introduced myself, I worked your session in February in my bright pink shirt.
And on top of that it helped me get a job in the industry so I would say a big you are valuable Thank You. :)

In one or two years, every convention will be flooded with bright-colored t-shirts. Then it will be really difficult to stand out. I call dibs on the Yellow Submarine outfit. (I have this great idea for a periscope that will be able to actually raise and lower.)

Marco Roy 09-27-2008 09:35 PM

There you go Darius ;) I don't really know why I didn't put your blog with the invaluables at first.

dariusk 10-02-2008 06:50 AM

Grant, I totally know who you are. I did get your business card, and you DO link my website from yours.

Gshonk 10-02-2008 08:03 AM

Haha. Oops I forgot about giving you that. :)
