It seems DA is half dead now because of massive holidays, hangouts and drinks but those who can still crawl and read, take a look at How Do I Break In
post by Jim Zub (Zubby
Jim talks about breaking into comic industry but his advice could apply to almost any creative field from videogames to books.
In brief his post sum-ups with this sentence:Having great work and a social connection with people already working in the field is a rock solid way to break in.
Or even briefly:Go make stuff and go make friends.
