You never know who you'll bump into at PAX. On the first day of the con I was scouting the show floor and spotted Jason Della Rocca, the former executive director of the International Game Developers Association
, and currently senior consultant for Perimeter Partners
. I'd seen Jason in a number of interviews and documentaries and he always has something insightful and levelheaded to say.
Needless to say he's a very friendly guy and has some cool perspectives on the game industry. He also snapped a lot of great pics and posted them on his blog Reality Panic
. It's rare that you get to meet people like Jason in person and I'm glad I had the opportunity. This is one reason I love being a game journalist.
