I heard from a few folks that it's not going to happen this year; the numbers weren't working. But I am far from an authority on the matter... maybe others have more concrete info...

I hope the convention continues. It was an amazing event and really worth attending.

I'm under the impression that it's not happening, but I have no official ties to Potluck Con.

Hey Hey!

Nothing official, but I'm hearing the same. Quite disappointing. Perhaps some smaller, regional get-togethers? I might have something in the works for Chicago... More later...

Meanwhile, this is all the more reason for some "Beer Nights" and doubling up on efforts in local organizations such as EARS in Chicago. (shameless plug)

yeah +1 on the local beer nights. i just hosted one this past week at my space in Richmond VA. Had a handful of great folks come out, and have more onboard for future meets, and we are definitely planning on making it monthly thing as much as we can. it's a good way to network, meet new people, get opinions on current projects, and be the big gear nerds that we are. if anyone is ever in town or nearby when we do this again, all are of course welcome. I've also seen recent posts for beer nights in Philly, Milwaukee, Nashville, and of course from you fine folks in Chicago. so do it up folks, its totally worth it.

Man, too bad about the Con. I never made it to one (having a 9-5 and limited vacation time makes it hard), but always heard amazing things.

+1.

This is disappointing. This was to the the year that I was going to say "fuck work and money" and just go.... man.

That's how I felt at the '07 Con - like a happy geek with his name tag around his neck. "My name is Kenny and I'm a TOMB-Geek!"

But I had a lot of fun and learned so much.
