Home From Dragon*Con

It was a great weekend at Dragon*Con and I’m highly glad I went. There was a high exhaustion component but also many many friends of various vintages – from 25 years to 2 minutes. I am probably not going to to blog a detailed trip report because I never actually finish them. I’ll tell a […]

Dragon*Con and the Geek Hierachy

A few years ago the diagram of the geek hierarchy spread through the blogosphere. When I was a teenage fan in the 1980s, I’ll admit to feeling a lot like this. When I’d go to the Atlanta Fantasy Fair, I felt superior to the people who dressed up in hall costumes. “I may be a […]
