a new conference?
Not really. In 1999, Jeff Lander and Chris Hecker chaired
the Hard Core Technical Seminars, produced by Miller Freeman,
Inc. The event was very successful, but Jeff and Chris decided
to do it the next year without Miller Freeman, and couldn't
use the name again, so they called it the Game Technology
Seminars. Game Tech is based on both the previous seminars,
though the Game Tech Leadership Summit is a new idea. The
people involved are mostly the same: Chris remains as an
advisor, Jeff continues as program chair, and Jonathan Blow
joins as the new co-chair. The event is produced by Jennifer
Pahlka, who was in charge of the Hard Core Technical Seminars
(and GDC and other events) at Miller Freeman (now CMP Media),
but is now independent.
