chazumaru I don’t think I’d mind gdc being somewhere else as long as I still got a free hotel - the one nice thing about it being in SF is some people stick around for a while longer and I get to hang out with them on my own terms then, but with covid that’s not as possible since we all want to quarantine after.
Definitely a lot of people I know got covid! Crossing my fingers for myself, so far so good, but I wore a mask 95% of the time.
As for the international thing, at least in terms of folks I know I’d say there was an almost equal proportion of Europeans and even Australians compared to usual, though there were fewer people in general. The entire continent of Asia was missing though, aside from my one friend From Singapore. There’s usually large contingents from the big Chinese and Korean companies at least, but this year (at least anecdotally/the ones I know etc) folks just sent their US representatives.
Also it should be noted that @Dunkr showed Hyper Gunsport at The MIX!! Should’ve gotten some words in there about that…
