Anybody going to Dragon Con 2009? GGE will be there, but just as fan boys this year, no table or autograph sessions. Why? Nothing new out this year. Look for us to set up shop again next year with some cool new stuff!
A thought on conventions...if you are a fan of a genre (horror, sci-fi, fantasy) or an activity (roleplaying, card games, video games). You should seek out a convention and get your butt to one! There is nothing so satisfying as being surrounded by thousands of like minded people all into the same things you are into.
If you are more than a fan and you are a creator, writer, artists, etc. For you it is beyond "should" you "have" to go! Make contacts! Get inspired! Advance your cause. Every industry as conferences. Do you think it is just for the locations and the golf outings? Well...sometimes it is (Vegas, Baby!) But if you want to break into the entertainment sector - get to the conferences. You will not regret it!
