PAX East 2011 Keynote Speaker is….
The first ever PAX East was held last year in Boston, MA and it was a huge success, in no small part due to the keynote address delivered by Wil Wheaton. He knocked it out of the park. Way out. So far out that it probably it flew past the Enterprise, who ignored it on the off chance it was an alien lifeform and they’d be violating The Prime Directive. It has just been announced that Jane McGonigal will be giving the keynote address at PAX East this year. In a previous post I wrote about her fantastic book called Reality is Broken in which she challenges the idea that gaming is a waste of time. Too often gamers are accused of being a lazy, anti-social bunch, but the author argues that the opposite is true. If ever there was an audience receptive to this idea, it would be the one at PAX. I know I’ll be there to hear what she has to say, what about you?
