Fellow mutants: A number of the residents of greater Boingdom (Boing Boing, Offworld, Boing Boing Gadgets, and Boing Boing Video) are heading to San Francisco from 23-27 March for the annual Game Developers Conference (GDC), and we're planning to do a comprehensive package of live and produced video reports for your enjoyment.

If you work in the game industry, have strong opinions about the future of gaming, or want to change other people's opinions about any area of game development, publishing, and distribution -- or just want to hang out with us and play Laser Twister(tm), give us some information about yourself and what you would bring to the broadcast here.
