Taking part in the 2nd Annual Univ. of Florida Game Studies Conference, Video Games and the Alien / Other was, for me, a very positive experience. I must say, that's thanks to the organizers of the event - the University of Florida Game Studies Group, and the other participants, who I congratulate for their presentations. Plus, given the conference overall subject, it was quite nice to be a legitimate alien, having my image beamed from another hemisphere. :)
Apparently there are plans about online proceedings, so I will let you know when it's done.
