Episode 095: Con Artists

Conventions! In the geek world the idea of them is synonymous with sleepless nights, smelly hallways, and unforgettable times with friends and strangers. Recently a few of us got to experience such an adventure, Kevin Saunders at San Diego Comic Con and me, Britton Peele (of the Dallas Morning News), and Tim Poon (of Platform Nation) at QuakeCon in Dallas, Texas. We all had our fair share of awful thespians and awesome new releases. So get your Waldo costume ready, put a hamster on your piano, and jump on a pig, you monkey! It’s BF time…

    In Korea there is a monthly event called Comic World also, it’s like comic con, except all they do is sell things created by fans of anime and such, whileas the rest dress up as game or manga characters. It’s a bunch of fun, but quite expensive.

    @Heesu,

    For what it’y the fans and for the fans. s worth SDCC started off that way as well, it was all about the fans, by the fans for the fans. You can still some remnants of that around the edges of the con and in the smaller rooms. I actually think some of the more fan-oriented stuff is better than some of the big name events.
