One of my regrets about Gencon Oz 2009, was the fact that I didn't get to participate in any of the seminars or panels...that was actually one of the things I enjoyed about Gencon Oz 2008.
Still it's good to see that there are panels and seminars dedicated to game design running at conventions elsewhere in the world.
V-Con Design Panel
Now I'm just waiting to see (or hear) some of the information from those Gencon Oz panels that I missed.
Hint. Hint. (for those who might be reading...)
