Hey! I'm Elizabeth, and I'm helping run a scifi/comics/gaming convention called Vericon. Thought I'd stop by to make the announcement that Randall's going to be speaking at our Con this March. He may be announcing this himself in the next few days, but I figured I'd let people know while our lower preregistration prices are still available.

Vericon is Harvard University's annual scifi/gaming convention. It's on March 19th-21st this year. Guest of honor is Timothy Zahn, and we've got a webcomics panel in the works.

Out of respect for sensible anti-spam policies, I won't link. A search for Vericon will find our site simply enough.
VERICONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN
Links for cons is almost always okay

I don't think our anti spam policy is anti links to vericon.

I went two years ago, and plan on attending this year (it's the weekend before PAX East, woo two cons in a row!!!). It was a fantastic time - great panels, fun games, very cool con attendees and staff.

Hey hey!

So I posted a while ago about Vericon, an SF convention at Harvard--I just wanted to say it starts in two days (Friday the 19th) and Randall's coming, so this is awesome.
