Kim's Cardinal Rules of Conference Capitalization

Plenty of people (e.g. 1, 2) have been posting about their GDC attendance, how there's too much to do, too much to see, too much overlap. I've been fretting about the same thing... but not too much. Why? Because after /*curmudgeon tone on*/ a decade of GDC attendance /*curmudgeon tone off*/, I've learned that:

1. The best meeting you'll have is one that wasn't scheduled.
2. The best class you'll attend is one you didn't plan to.
3. The best demo you'll see is one you didn't expect to.
4. The best conversation you'll have will be one that occurs when you skip a session you planned to attend

Not that you shouldn't plan. By all means, do, but don't sweat it too much :-)

That being said, if you are new to the conference, this is a pretty good article to help you with your planning.
