My heartfelt thanks to all of you who contributed to Michael’s and my efforts to gather money to fly Ben to GDC. We raised $935.50 from 40 contributions by the deadline, and a couple other people chipped in right after the widget closed to bring us up to the $1100 goal, making the effort a rousing success.
I am extraordinarily grateful to all of you who contributed; it was a wonderful sign of what this community means to all of us, and I’m sure that Ben will more than repay the trust that you have placed in him. I’m very much looking forward to meeting him in person (along with any of my other blog readers who will be there; I registered for GDC myself earlier this week!) and reading his articles that will come out of this.
