My recent IGDA article on Quality of Life in a global game industry is now live on the IGDA website. We'll see if anyone notices. :) I try.

    I didn't have that link in there prior to it's posting on the IGDA website. I actually just went back to what I sent to the IGDA and it definitely isn't in there.

    I'm not going to respond to your use of "???" or the tone in the later part of your note. I actually specifically did not not the recent Dhruvite postings in my original article.
