barometric waffle linguists (pic by me)

Briefbrief con report

This year's Further Confusion (population 2,062) was awesome. I didn't get to see as much of it as I would have liked, due to being on a time and cash crunch, but I still got about 48 hours of pure social goodness. Mostly I just hung out with folks, but that's a damn good way to spend the weekend.

For the first time, I spent my con pimping. I passed out flyers advertising the TTU shared fiction setting (and the wiki!), and left a batch of the flyers down near the registration table. Remains to be seen whether it will gain me any readers or authors, but the important thing is that the setting feels mature enough for me to try.

I also got devirginized. Badge devirginized, that is. After 10+ years of cons and 8 furry cons, I bought my very first ever paid nametag art. It cost $1 and was scribbled by Gideon with a sharpie on an index card. That's a niche market too awesome to pass up.

I don't have the saintly patience today to list everyone I met at the con, so I'm not even going to attempt it. It was great seeing all of you, my old friends.

A few folks get special mention. Many, many thanks to paka, perlandria and $roommate; and EP and pyxaron; for my two nights of crash space. It was great finally meeting you and yours, tailypo. A shout out to all of my crewmates on the Saturday night expedition to that strange and horrible alternate reality known as THE MALL. Congratulations to axonfuel for spinning what I still consider to be the con's best music. And props to Kilana and cryptodragon for taking the time to seek a stranger out and introduce themselves.
