Watch John Carmack's QuakeCon Keynote Live, Right Here

QuakeCon 2013 officially begins today in Dallas, TX. You won't want to miss legendary developer John Carmack kicking things off on stage. His previous appearances have always been educational. Hell, we might even hear some more about Doom 4!

His opening speech begins at 4:30 central time, but this Twitch stream will be your home for many other presentations over the course of QuakeCon this year. I've posted the schedule, courtesy of Bethesda, below it for your reference.
