Dot Con 2012!

By Phil Plait | February 24, 2012 11:25 am

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:

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.

Wanna watch? Then just click here! When the panels are running, they’ll stream there. I’ll note that this whole thing launches with the ThinkGeek panel at 1:00 PST (21:00 UTC) today!

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:

It’s all about the triumph of intellect and romance over brute force and cynicism.
