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).

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.)
