GDC: We didn’t invite Jack Thompson

Yesterday we told you that GamePolitics found news that Jack Thompson might be attending the Game Developers Conference as a keynote speaker, but it turns out that the GDC knew nothing of this. Now it looks like Jack is that guy who shows up at the party, swearing that someone there invited him.

The GDC sent us a statement of correction:

“The Game Developers Conference has not extended an invitation to Jack Thompson to speak at GDC 2008,” Jamil Moledina, executive director, Game Developers Conference, said.  “We look forward to announcing the full speaker lineup closer to the show.”

Guy at the door: Ooh, hmm. [looks at the list] Yeah man, you’re not on the list. 

Jack Thompson: Are you sure? Check again.

Guy at the door: No, man, you’re not on here. Sorry, dude — but you can leave those beers here if you want.
