Carmack-Free QuakeCon

Though John Carmack offered to speak at QuakeCon in spite of his departure from id Software, it turns out the id co-founder will not be speaking at this year's installment in the gaming gathering. It seems logical that the lawsuit over his work between id Software parent Zenimax and his new employer Oculus VR factors into it, but whatever the reason, Mr. Carmack tweeted the following explanation: "Since the question keeps getting asked -- no, I am not going to be at Quakecon this year. My 2.5 hr talk at SMU should still be released."

Aww! Finally when my schedule is clear and I have cash to go, there's no point.

Correct. It was the best part of the show by far. Carmack knows so much, and unlike so few engine developers is willing to share it and is articulate enough to do so effectively.
...and he actually pulls it out in a way I can understand it!

Nuts, Carmack was pretty much the only reason I still paid any attention at all to QuakeCon.
