Incidentally, Re: InConJunction
Howard Tayler wrote the post-con write-up I would have written (minus, you know, the parts that refer specifically to Howard Tayler’s professional life), so I’ll just point you at it and let you read it with my voice in your head.
Nevertheless, I will amplify what Howard said about it being an excellent example of a well-run local convention, and in particular I would recommend all cons try to emulate InConJunction’s Con Suite, which rather than being a hotel suite was one of the meeting rooms, with lots of tables for folks to sit at, and (importantly) enough ventilation so that by the end of the con, the consuite did not reek of fan funk and crockpot chili. It makes a huge difference in my desire to actually want to spend time there. Conrunners, if you’re not doing your con suites like this already, you should.
In any event: I had a really wonderful time, and it all went off without a hitch, at least on my end. Thanks, InConJunction, for having me.
