Wonder how many $299 conference passes GDC sells for an all-digital event

I'm working on a new section of my website that was initially inspired by seeing a bunch of folks' "personal wikis" and "digital gardens" and the like, but which is evolving into "a regular-ass website"

It's weird how refreshing it feels to just make some pages and subpages that aren't part of a blog
