That's the one I meant, and one is definitely better than zero. :-)

Unfortunately, though I work with games I am not in a position to either
write them or really influence in what they are written. I work with
military procurement, mainly keeping track of the (serious and military)
side of the games industry. While we have done some development it has not
been scratch but modding existing games engines (Unreal Tournament). Look at
http://youtube.com/watch?v=3vfm7hyj-xg for a short film of it. Or search for
"foreign ground". Also unfortunately we don't do the work ourselves, it's
procurement so we order from industry and someone else has all the fun. :-)

We're using Erlang to run an ad network for Flash games (amongst other
> things), and some of us will be at GDC as well.


Definitely hope to meet you there.

Robert
