LOSTCAUSE 2010: Really? Seriously?

Seriously, you want me to run a con? Don't make me do it. I am just crazy enough to attempt it, you know. I need a poll here:

I am going to ask for Bruce and Cheryl blessing and permission for that "Evecon weekend." If they don't give it to me...

Safe! You won't run it! Sanity for teh win!

Hold it anyway. Screw them!

Hold it another weekend that hotels are dead and have no business

Would you get a room for the con?

Yes, Fri/Sat night

Yes, but only one night
3(16.7%)
Yes, but I'd share with other attendees
5(27.8%)
Nah. Screw you and your hotel room block bourgeois

If I hold this thing, would you volunteer your time? Staff will be a scant need, I probably only need a dozen people or so

Yes, you can count on me being on this sinking ship, admiral!

In the comments section, please post the following:

  • Ideas and stuff "I have always wanted to see at a con" within reason
  • "I really hate it when a relaxacon does..." [fill in the blank]
  • Sean and I are thinking about inviting Al Gore as a guest under the title "Voice actor of Futurama and sketch actor as seen on Saturday Night Live," and nothing else. How does that make you feel?
  • Share with me one of the WORST security moments you ever had at a con
  • Share with me the FUNNIEST thing you have ever seen at a con
  • Talk me out of this
