Pitbull and the motorcycle guy from cable? This technology conference keeps getting weirder and weirder.

If anything, a quick look at the conference schedule for today reinforces the idea that Fred's just there to shove his bawx under the nose of anyone unfortunate enough to look in his direction:

This whole day is a giant pile of nothing until 6pm.  No talks, no breakout areas, no networking spaces.  Nothing.  It literally appears as though the organisers ran out of scheduling slots on day 1 (which I'm still trying to figure out, given that their afternoon sessions looked like a bunch of sales pitches that could have been compressed or run on tracks independent of actual talks), had to stick the food & booze somewhere, and awkwardly pinned it onto the end of their much-vaunted extra day, which only exists to have somewhere to tack on the dinner & drinks.

 

I've co-founded and -organised conferences for 20 years at this point, and worked them for longer than that.  It's...  Odd, to say the least.

Partial transcript; emphasis mine:

 

Chesnais: so, you'll see--you'll see. There's going to be a game.  It's gonna be bigger than any other game and this is why we love the industry. Because you can create and you can do stuff. 

 

 

That Fred! What a salesman!

 

Get 'em while supplies last...

Well, it is Arizona's signature tech event. That about sums it up.

Hey, now...  That French Guy could be Jean-Louis Gassée.  This could be the second coming of the BeBox, which I would completely support.

 

Wait, no.  JLG actually got hardware built.  Woz is correct; carry on.

It's a damn shame johnphelan1979 can't find some sort of device that already exists that can handle his 3 + too reasons for backing this system. Can't think of any device that can

 

1 play tons of Atari games

2 play tons of retro games

3 play youtube videos

too play music on Spotify 

 

If anyone here can help him out that's also on that forum, please let him know.

Someone tell him to go talk to Atari Dude. I hear he has actually shown something to work.

Well that's what happens when you boot all the sane people. The sociopaths start attacking themselves. Wonder if Lucas' love of Atari is 'brqk3n'?

 

Geeze they are a sad and funny lot. And I mean funny in the saddest way possible.

It didn't meet much success in the Amico thread (maybe you guys didn't follow the news about Fortnite), so I post it again here:

Fully expect to get negative 20 pictures or videos about it.

Meaning, that's how much Atari owes backers at this point.

I'm actually kinda curious who would win in a fight-- Fred or Steve. o u o

Fred kinda towers over Steve and looks a little more intimidating, but Steve can probably run over Fred with his motorcycle.

Hmm.  A Mortal Kombat spin off.  Instead of Fatalities, you get "Announcements"

I guess the question now is, what was the outcome of the appearance?

Short of video surfacing, I don't think we'll ever really know.  My guess: Fred did a bunch of glad-handing with Woz and tried to make himself look better than he is by proximity to someone who actually has a clue.

 

If he really did try to pitch the Ataribollocks(tm) to Woz as part of this process, it's probably a safe bet that Woz looked at it, saw it for what it is, made a neutral-but-complimentary statement, and went on to discuss other subjects.
