Friday is media whore day

This morning, the very wonderful Amy Tiemann who writes the parenting blog for CNet posted a great story on What They Play, as a result of our meeting at the Sandbox Summit last week. She was very supportive, and there was a link on the main CNet door this morning...which has been great for traffic today.

We had lunch with Peter Hartlaub from the San Francisco Chronicle, to discuss the site, the business, and the video game industry (fingers crossed on what comes from that) over a delicious plate of risotto at Ducca.

Immediately after that, Tom Sarris and I hoofed it over to the CNet building on Second Street for a taping of an industry roundtable discussion with Ryan MacDonald and Ricardo Torres from Gamespot, Andy McNamara from Game Informer, Francesca Reyes from OXM, Matt Atwood from BioWare, and myself. It was an hour long show, that I believe will be posted next Tuesday, and covers everything from the changing nature of games media, to ESRB ratings, the Wii, and anything else we could dream up. It was a great vibe.

The whoring didn't stop though! With just 15 minutes to spare, I then dashed a couple of blocks back down Second Street to the Ziff building to tape an episode of DL.TV with Scott Asnault about What They Play, and what we're working on at the moment. Not sure when that one will air...but it'll probably be next week.

Lots of chit chat, and as a result I did virtually no "real" work today. It's going to be a busy weekend then, I guess.
