I'm actually kind of proud of the people on my Facebook feed. That story was trending all day yesterday and no one made a smartass joke or anything. It's pretty fucked up that someone would do that.

Same here. I was terrified that someone would have something awful to say, but thus far people seem to agree that trying to poison people is bad.

The more I look into it, the more inevitable this became. The can wasn't being put on because of the organizers' stubborness, it was being put on because contracts had already been signed and cancelling it would have cost the organizers an additional $120K. However, no ticket sales and no guests, along with the fact that Dashcon is several weeks past the date to settle with their existing creditors (and have as yet to actually contact any of them) lead directly to the impossibility of continuing.

By all accounts a class action lawsuit on behalf of their creditors is in the works.

Furthermore, one of the owners, Cain Hopkins, is looking at actual jail time for theft, but the exact nature of that is up in the air.

So, we're about three months out and I figured I would see if anyone other than Hannah, myself, and the people who already live in Chicago were planning to make C2E2. I want to book my hotel room in the next week or so so I just want to see.

For the purposes of Roommates, as of right now, I have three people in my room (Myself, Matt, and a friend of ours). I'm willing to take up to two more. I'm leaning towards the Best Western this year because it is the cheaper option (129 a night vs 149 at the next two hotels up in price) though if anyone who is going would rather do a different hotel, let me know.

Also, Press Pass applications are currently up.

Jealous. Hannah might be going for a stealth lead in the great "Who's Met Who" contest. Also, drinks with Des should be an item someplace on everyone's bucket list.

Right, I'm probably going to go ahead and book the hotel room on Wednesday. Probably the Best Western for familiarity sake. It's an odd year so those tend to be the ones where it's just us Mid-Westerners anyway. Unless the other members of my group have other plans, I'll probably plan on just Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights.
