2008 worldcon site selection|
I haven't even decided whether to vote or not.
The primary reason that I would vote for Chicago is that the committee bidding is not the same one that ran prior Chicons. This team is significantly younger and more energetic than the folks who ran Chicon 2000.
The primary reason that I would vote for Denver is that it's been a long time since there was a Worldcon in that part of the country, and they can probably do a reasonable job.
The primary reason I would not vote for Chicago is that friends of mine would try to drag me into helping out on it.
The primary reason I would not vote for Denver is that their hotel is located a long way from their convention space. Bleah - I hate that. They are also in a bunch of hotels, which means that there would be a secondary attempt to get into the same hotel as my friends - which often doesn't work. Bleah again.
Columbus is a nice town, but not up to a Worldcon. IMO. Yeah, I feel that way about Ann Arbor, too! The whole state of Michigan, for that matter. :-)
I guess I've talked myself into voting for Chicago. :-)
