It's a fact: being a content creator opens you up to vicious, anonymous negativity that can make a person weep and clear out the whiskey section at the local grocer. Let's give our collective livers a break, shall we? Nika Harper has braved YouTube comments and forum posts for years, and using logic and empathy, this GDC 2014 talk helps you craft mental armor that can resist flames and save money on therapy bills.
About the GDC Vault
In addition to this presentation, the GDC Vault and its new YouTube channel offers numerous other free videos, audio recordings, and slides from many of the recent Game Developers Conference events, and the service offers even more members-only content for GDC Vault subscribers.

Group subscriptions are also available: game-related schools and development studios who sign up for GDC Vault Studio Subscriptions can receive access for their entire office or company by contacting staff via the GDC Vault group subscription page. Finally, current subscribers with access issues can contact GDC Vault technical support.
