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.
