I’ll be at Penguicon this coming weekend, along with a lot of other awesome folks. I’ve wanted to go for a while, so I’m thrilled! When you read the description, it makes sense:
Penguicon is a three-day event where we all learn from each other (as
well as from our Guests of Honor) about hacking, building sci-fi
universes, soldering, painting miniatures, gaming, coding, music,
incredible costumes, and more.
Our two pillars are Science Fiction and Open Source, but we cover as
many diverse nerdy interests as possible. We have a consuite with free
soda, coffee, munchies and other real food, which makes it easier on
your budget. You can find all kinds of original artwork and
non-commodity crafts in our enormous Maker Market.
I’m on a number of panels:
1000 Saturday: How To Do Dystopia
1300 Saturday: How To Make the Fantastic Believeable
1700 Saturday: Rejection – Dealing with the Dark Side of the Creative Arts
1900 Saturday: You Can’t Kill the Undead
1100 Sunday: Marketing Online Content
1300 Sunday: Reading
If you’d like to meet up, twitter’s always good to get a hold of me and arrange something.
