Penguicon 5.0: Less than two weeks to go
Check out the Penguicon 5.0 website if you might consider coming to Troy for a combined science fiction/linux/open source programming convention with swordfighting, music, gaming, dancing, parties, a dealers room, and such luminaries on the program as systems security expert Bruce Schneier, nanotech industry guide Christine Peterson, webcomic artists Randy Milholland (Something Positive), The Ferrett (Home on the Strange), and Rob Balder (PartiallyClips), Gaming hero Steve Jackson, and SF authors Charlie Stross, Elizabeth Bear, John Scalzi, Nick Sagan (Carl Sagan's son), Karl Schroeder, Sarah Zettel, Tobias S. Buckell, and Sarah Monette.

Online registration is open until April 15 at just $45 for the weekend.

I will be busy for the convention being Charlie's GoH Liaison, which I expect will be a lot of fun. I'm also on a couple panels (Getting Things Done and Women in Technology, last I checked). Rikhei and Hope and I would welcome a fourth female roommate if you're looking for a room (the hotel is sold out). If anyone has a room staying over to Monday morning I could crash in, that would be a help, too.

Actually, while online registration is open until the 15th, the pre-reg discount has expired and the rate is currently $45, the same as the at-the-door price.

Pre-registration numbers look very good - it should be a well attended and fun year!

The Registration Goddess has corrected me. :)

Let me know if you need help setting up during the first half of the day on Friday. My GoH will be off on the Geeks with Guns trip until around 2, I'm told.

Thanks - I'll let you know. I'm not sure what time they are wanting to open registration - I guess I should find that out... I was figuring on opening around 2, so some setup help before that would be good.

You left out Carl Ray in your rundown of Penguicon-bound web cartoonists. Apparently he's a Nifty.

I'd never heard of him before either, but both Randy and theferrett plugged his strip, so I checked it out. It's pretty good if you can suspend your disbelief enough. I recommend a tower crane.

self-correction

Whoops, that URL should be http://www.fishtankcartoon.com/, not http://fishtankcartoon.blogspot.com/ (which is, sensibly enough, his blog).

Another note: Your link to Home on the Strange is broken because you forgot to put "http://" in front of it.
