Outgoing IGDA (International Game Developers Association) executive director Jason Della Rocca has ended his nine year term at the organization with what he himself describes as a "mini rant" and "fiery farewell".
The speech was first made at his rant session at GDC, an apology for his work at IGDA over the years. Paraphrasing the speech on his blog Reality Panic, Della Rocca began: "Serving the IGDA for the past 9 years has been extremely rewarding and challenging. I helped to get a lot done, but somehow feel that I failed the community."
"Sorry for being too focused on the nuts and bolts, with my head down in execution. I just didn't spend enough time on the big picture vision stuff. It's scary, and easy to avoid when you're just 'busy' doing stuff," he continued.
