Filed under “random” comes news that Rick Perry, Governor of Texas, is to give a keynote at this year’s E3.

“Governor Perry and the E3 Media & Business Summit are both great success stories. The Governor’s keynote address is especially timely given the high concentration of entertainment software developers and publishers in Texas as well as the state’s long-standing support of our industry,” said said ESA’s Michael Gallagher.

“The Governor’s forward-thinking leadership in encouraging the growth and development of our $18 billion industry is a roadmap for other state executives who want to transform their state economies for the 21st century.”

E3’s on from July 15-17 in LA this year.
