It's 37 degrees outside in scenic downtown Boston, but Totilo and I are staying warm inside the John Hynes Convention Center, where the inaugural PAX East is slowly swinging into gear. Behold our first image gallery!

The crowds are gathering; the badges being distributed, and the swag bags are being stripped of their Magic cards and then dumped into convenient trash receptacles located throughout the facility. We've secured colorful program guides, which we will no doubt leave behind when we need them the most, and we've hollowed out our own little corner of the press room, a cozy little place where everybody knows your name, and they're always glad you came.

Now that we've established our presence, it's time to wander out into the relative warmth of the Hynes, experience things, and then communicate those things to you. No need to thank us; it's just what we do.
