Dot Con 2012 starts today! Yay!
Oh drat, I hear you thinking. Another con I can’t go to? Well, I have some good news: you can go to this one, because it’s online. So unless someone printed out this blog post and handed it to you on a piece of paper, Dot Con 2012 is something you can do. And I’m a part of it!
Dot Con is a celebration of nerdy things, and we’ve got a fun lineup of nerdy stuff planned for the weekend:
- My pal Josh Cagan will be talking with a bunch of Hollywood types who will regale us with stories of being a geek in Tinseltown.
- Virginia Corbett will make geeky ice cream (with special guest appearance by her husband Bill, whom you may know better from Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax).
- There will be singing by The Doubleclicks and Mike Phirman! I’ll note I heard Mike play at W00tstock in San Francisco a couple of years ago, and he was amazing. Watch this short video for proof (he did this live).
- Len Peralta
- Logan Bonner
- Thinkgeek will be doing stuff too! Seriously, if you know who all these folks are you’ll love this. If you don’t, well, you should.
- Lots more!
Oh– and me, too. I’ll be doing a live chat online on Sunday February 26th at 5:00 pm PST (01:00 UTC), and be something like my Q&BA, but even nerdier. If that’s possible.
These are all good, nerdly folks, and I’m really looking forward to hanging out with them online.
… and why are we doing this? Maybe Dot Con’s motto will help:
