We've been liberally whoring ourselves again recently, so hopefully there's some What They Play love incoming any day now. Last week Ira, Tom and I had lunch with Peter Hartlaub at the San Francisco Chronicle, and tomorrow we have a photographer coming to snap pix for something that I hope will be in the paper on Sunday. Fingers crossed on that one. Today we met with Michelle Slatalla from the New York Times about a bunch of gaming ideas, and then this afternoon with Lisa Guernsey also from the New York Times about a piece that may hit in Circuits on Thursday. Again, fingers crossed. Tomorrow morning (just before the photo shoot...I still don't know what I should wear) we're chatting with Family Circle (which has a mind-blowing 3.5 million circulation, I just discovered) for an upcoming piece that will probably hit in a couple of months. This all comes at the same time as my first guest post on Ypulse, and the news that I've somehow been invited to speak at SXSW this year (thanks Anastasia) the enormity of which I'm still struggling with a bit. The momentum is really starting to build, and people are really responding well to the whole idea of demystifying video games for parents. It's all a bit wild, to be honest - I can hardly believe our good fortune so far! Fingers/toes/eyes/legs-crossed that it all works out, and I didn't just jinx the whole thing by blogging about it.
