UPDATE: Please read the entire article for a statement from the GDC organizers.

Jack Thompson is apparently going to deliver a keynote address at the 2008 Game Developers Conference in February.

This makes perfect sense because Jack Thompson is a game developer. Also, he seems like a well-adjusted, sane person. Of course, none of those things are true.

Jack announced his attendance through in a legal document filed in Florida pertaining to his lawsuit against the Florida bar.

In reference to a debate he held in Philadelphia, Jack wrote this in the document:

"In the audience [for] this event, unbeknownst to me, was the man who organizes the largest video game gathering in the world, the Game Developers Conference (GDC), attended by 20,000 folks…

Because of the quality and coherence of my presentation, I was then asked by the GDC to reprise the Philadelphia debate, this time in February in San Francisco in a 5000 seat arena, as the keynote event."

None of this has been confirmed by the organizers of the GDC as of yet.

UPDATE: We have received a statment from the organizers of the GDC:

"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."

Looks like Jack was blowing smoke...sound familiar?
