There’s no humble way to put this: i kick ass. i’ve survived Conference Season, having spoken at three conferences in two weeks (including FITC Screens 2011, DIG London and Gamercamp Lvl 3). Apart from hearing kind praise anecdotally from conference attendees, FITC brings the hard data.
The hard Data.
