So, I was recently invited to speak at the Serious Play Conference out in Redmond, where I totally tricked everyone into thinking I knew stuff about China and gameplay.
It was pretty nerve-wracking, I spoke on the third day on the conference, and I spend the previous two days worrying about it. When I was listening to sessions, I was worried that I wasn’t spending enough time preparing my talk, or when I left and worked on my talk, I worried that I was missing interesting sessions. There really were some fantastic speakers doing great projects at the intersection of gameplay, technology and education, and I was kind of stunned to be included on that list.
I wonder how long it’ll be before I stop thinking that I’m really not a waitress anymore.
