Overall I was pretty happy with how the panel went. You probably can’t tell, but I was really nervous. I had to concentrate really hard just to drink a glass of water because my hand was shaking. After I said some stupid things and made people laugh, I felt more comfortable. There’s one question I answer near the end about Chrono Ressurection, but for some reason I was thinking of Crimson Echoes, so my answer makes no sense. But my mind went blank while I was talking, so my answer wouldn’t have made sense anyway.
Also, Larry Oji is awesome. I hope I get to hang out with him again sometime.
I will be on a panel discussing fair use related to video game culture and remixing at World’s Fair Use Day on January 13th, 2011.
Whoa, someone wants me to speak in public! What are they thinking? I’m going to be on a panel discussing fair use related to video game culture and remixing at World’s Fair Use Day, held on January 13th in Washington DC. The other people on the panel will be David Lloyd (djpretzel) and Larry Oji (Liontamer) from OverClocked ReMix and Josephine Dorado from the New School. I’m a huge fan of OC ReMix, so I’m very excited about meeting David and Larry. I’m hoping to eventually make some of my own remixes to submit to OC ReMix.
I very much enjoy public speaking, but I never imagined I’d be doing it so soon. And this is awesome because I feel very passionate about fair use and video games, so it’s a great topic to talk about. If anyone lives near Washington DC, feel free to come to the event and hang out with me. I’ll be leaving right after Fair Use Day is over though because I’m getting married the next day, no joke.
The panel will be filmed and I’ll be posting a video on the website, so don’t feel bad if you can’t attend.
