I agree that BlizzCon is best used as an event to make big announcements, and that if Blizzard doesn't have something they're eager to showcase, it's better to save the expense of BlizzCon and hold it back for a year. That being said, I thought the "Geek Is..." speech was pretty valuable, because it did a great job of showing us that Blizzard's devs (and Metzen in particular) have the same interests that we all do, and for aspiring writers, artists, and game designers, that's a heartening thing to see them expend resources on. I don't see them ever doing that again (and it's important to note that Metzen is really the only speaker of quality on the staff when not speaking specifically about a game) but I don't feel that "Geek is..." was a waste of my time or money.
