Sorry the AI is late, guys! I was distracted by saving the world and watching Newsradio.
I won’t lie. I’ve got CON-envy. Added to it, I’m a complete CON-virgin. I’m not the nerdiest person… I don’t read graphic novels, I barely watch any anime, I could probably not name all of the cosplay characters in a given room if I tried. What I envy is the sense of community.
Despite the drama that goes along with being part of an inner-circle, social placement is important to most people. I don’t want to necessarily be well known, but to feel like I’m welcomed and accepted in an entire community of like-minded people is really very cool.
And I want to hug you all.
Anyway, one of these years I plan to attend a conference. I don’t know which it will be because they all get SUCH great reviews from everybody. So…
If you were to suggest a single conference for me to attend as a con-virgin, which would be your personal choice? What are you basing your decision on? Would you buy me a beer? No really. Will you buy me a beer? I need one.
