The launch of MODO 701 and my trip to the USA

Yes I know, I am a little bit late. Actually, a lot late in announcing MODO701 which was released on March 25th, 2013. But I have a good excuse. I was in San Francisco attending the Game Developers Conference (GDC) the very day that Brad Peebler and Greg Brown conducted the 701 webinar - and subsequently launched the latest version of modo!

So why has it taken me almost a month to post anything about MODO 701? Because I've only just arrived back home to Sydney after a whirlwind four-week tour of all things MODO and video gaming.

That first week I was fortunate enough to meet Greg Brown demo'ing MODO701 at the Intel booth at GDC and I also met Brad Peebler and David Tracy there, as well as  modonauts Wes McDermott and Pat Crandley (Obsolete http://modopedia.dtev.com) who dropped by the booth later in the week. The following week I met up with James Guard who runs BAmUG (Bay Area modo User Group) as well as John Hayes (ex Sanzaru) and a bunch of other modonauts and luxologists at the TiedHouse in Mountain View.

Then last week I flew down to Los Angeles for the Game Developers Drink-up - a networking event, and on Saturday attended the Los Angeles modo User Group meeting at Scott Robertson's studio in Culver City, where Greg Brown, Yazan Malkosh and Rob Baldwin conducted a 701 Q&A session and afterwards I got to meet Steve Talkowski whom I first started following on Twitter about two years back :).

So there you go. That's enough name-dropping for one article 😛
