Oh wow, I just discovered NerdCon Stories.

I... really really really want to go to this. I would need a con buddy or two (because that's how I roll) but... wow. Just... wow. This is entirely and completely up my alley and exactly the sort of thing I love talking about, thinking about, analyzing, overanalyzing, geeking out about, squeeing about, and generally getting all excited and involved with. Anyone else really intrigued and maybe want to go?

I'll bet I could go to this! I haven't been to Minneapolis in a while, and I have friends to see there when I'm not conning.

I can't tell what they're going for. Standing in line to gawp at pros? Egalitarian squee-fest? Something else? If it's another excuse to reinforce geek social hierarchies, that's not for me. If their politics are actually good, then...

...well, then JofCon is still the same weekend! What's up with that?

It's by the same people who put together VidCon, if that helps. Here's some more info.

Thank you! Yes, that helps a lot.

I like a lot of what Hank and John do, but I have many problems with this framing of fandom. Not to mention, it conflicts with JofCon. So, not for me. Good to know, anyway. Thanks again.
