Good evening, Nation! Yours truly has the awesome responsibility of heading out to Boston for a 3-day whirlwind run of Pax East, and you’ll want to keep it locked in to Platform Nation for all the latest information as I come across it. There are a few ways you’ll be able to follow along, and I’ll lay them all out for you.
First things first: If you’re not already, follow me on Twitter @vttym. Once you’ve done that, you’ll want to add the channel #PNPax to your stream so you can follow what I’m putting up. I’ll be using that hashtag throughout the weekend so you can get my impressions on what I’m encountering.
If pictures are more your thing, I’ve also set up a set on Flickr that will show what I’m snapping. I will try to make sure everything I send is tagged appropriately, and forgive the holder picture which, right now, is of my basement setup. Exciting, I know.
Last but not least, I may even be able to live stream some of what I’m seeing. This will largely depend on cell phone coverage and battery power, but keep an eye on my Ustream channel to see if I’m up to anything. In the meantime, you can see such hits as my Rock Band 3 endless setlist run, my Extra Life 24 hours of gaming (all captured), or my daughter’s first birthday. I know, tough choice.
Finally, I will be posting information on Platform Nation under the heading PAX East 2011 as well. I can’t promise I’ll flood the channels with information, but I will do my best to get a recap up daily of what I saw, who I talked to, and what I have been playing. If you have anything in particular you want me to check out, let me know either in the comments here, or via twitter, so that I can do my best to get you the coverage you want. If you have questions you want me to ask the developers, there’s no better chance than now!
And spread the word: even if you don’t have anything specific you want to see, your friends might. You have a unique opportunity of having someone at the event who wants your input. Don’t squander it!
