As one of my last forays into the technology industry, I fulfilled my duties as LAN chair for Spocon 2009.
I was again confirmed to me this weekend that while technology is a great hobby. It’s not what I’m supposed to be doing with my life. I did nothing but sit in the LAN room and watch people play games all day long. It was a good time to reconnect with a lot of my friends from Clan HOOD and see some new faces that I’d only talked to through forums before.
I am not nearly as exhausted as I was last year. I actually made it into work today on time. I took the Monday after the con off last year. I also took the time to sleep during the con. I ended up shutting the lan room down Saturday night at 1am because I didn’t want to be extremely tired the next morning (I had to lead worship at church).
Overall I’m glad it’s over and glad to be closing the book on that part of my life. Jason is planning on starting up LAN gaming under Orange Blossom Studios, a game design studio he and I are apart of. If we do end up starting up a new LAN gaming group, I will be on the side-lines offering what advice I can. Jason has the drive and the motivation to do it. I wish him well.
