1.My latest Vlog

I am still looking for people to interview for the show.
What would you like to see me cover this year without bother the major panelists?
It's back and tentatively scheduled! The Heroes and Villain's Ball at Dragon Con is the place to be. Hosted by the Video Gaming Track and BritTrack with DJ Jennocide spinning!

When you are done RSVPing....do this....
Also, I need a larger font and I want to print it landscape on legal paper so I can actually read it. So the column headings won't print in the same place as the pdf.
I've tried PDF converters and they don't work for me.
Dragoncon tips (and con tips in general) here:
And part two is here:
As always, I hope that these tips are of help. :) Enjoy the con!
NOTE: There is one panel that is not on that page:
B5: Gathering of the Babblers
A much requested Babylon 5 fan forum! Come listen as Bill McIntire, Shaun Rosado, and Maggie MacAlpine discuss funny hair, ancient aliens, psychics and more, wrapped up in a five mile long space station, all alone in the night; Sat 2:30pm; A703[M]
One of the nice pieces of news is that they expect to release an update, probably this weekend, that will enable users to have their schedule and other settings synced between their devices. That means we'll be able to browse and make selections on the iPad where it's easier to see everything, and then carry around just the iPhone (or iPod touch, if you're going that route) with your info automagically transferred.
A cool new feature (at least, if it was there before, I don't recall it) is the "Friends" tab. You can give your friends a code, and they get access to your schedule and whatever contact info you choose to share. Note that you have to generate a new friend code for each person you'd like to share with. I suggested that a) I'd rather be able to generate one code and give it to everyone, and b) if they can't do this, they should make it crystal clear that that won't work, but they quite reasonably responded that they want to err on the side of security.
(The second list, of suggestions made, will be updated and posted asap.)
As always, please feel free to reply with more helpful tips. :)
I am the new head minion for the American Sci-Fi Classics track, where clever geeks and awesome guests talk about sci-fi TV and movies from the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s.We have a new track director this year, the illustrious Joe Crowe. If you've come to the ASFC track before, especially our "Stump the Geeks" panels, you know Joe.
I've been asked by Joe to put out a sneak peak at what you can expect from our new line-up this year:
8 Bits of Awesome
Bring your controllers as we take a loving look back at the golden age of video games. How Pac-Man fever infected everything from music to cartoons.
Manimal & Friends: Quickly Canceled Sci-Fi TV
Some of the most fun sci-fi TV came on two times, then nevermore. We’ll show the love for your favorite one-season wonders and ours (Manimal. Sweet Manimal.)
Agents of S.P.Y.F.I.
Join our double-oh status panelists as they take a look at all things Spy-Fi; movies and TV, serious and spoof -- and the 50th anniversary of a little film containing a guy named Bond, James Bond.
Join our zombie experts (do they have PhZs?) to watch an undead movie classic!
Here We Go Again: Sci-Fi Movie Remakes
Remakes, reboots, and re-imaginings. Which ones were good ideas, and which were regrettable regurgitations?
Ahead to the Past! Time Travel in TV and Movies
Talk about classic time travel TV and movies, from Time Tunnel to Voyagers to Back to the Future, as we look to the future, for that is where we will spend the rest of our lives.
And there will be more! We've got Farscape guests! Babylon 5 guests! Games! Contests! We also have a Facebook group, and will be putting out a call for people who want to volunteer to speak on fan panels once the full schedule is released into the wild.
And calling all arty types! We want logos for this track. It has to say "American Sci-Fi Classics" on it. We'd like one 80s-style, and one 70s-style. Send 'em to firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll sing of your greatness like dwarves!
Just wondering how many folks who are gamers would be interested in something like a flea market/swap meet for gaming stuff at Dragon Con? Nothing to compete with the dealers. Do it after dealer's hours on Friday night and/or Saturday night for 2-4 hours. Most gamers I know,myself included have loads of old gaming stuff that other folks might be interested in. And loads of other gaming conventions have these. I normally take the money I make from my sales and spend it with the dealers, and so do most of the others I know who do it. What would it take to have something like this in the gaming area at Dragon Con? You could charge a slight fee for tables, which would bring in more money for the Con and gaming. Have it set up for gaming stuff only....not just general sci-fi/fantasy stuff which would be available in the dealer's room I can't be the only one who attends DC that thinks this would be a cool thing.
Who do I need to talk to about setting something like this up? How do I go about contacting them? And is anyone else interested in something like this?
Here is a list of all the academic panels at Dragon*Con that have been organized by the Comics and Popular Arts Conference group. This year's programming would not have been possible without my co-organizer, R. Scott Nokes, our Programming Chair, Damien Williams, and our Programming Committee: Dennis LoRusso, Stephanie Noell, Vickie Willis, and Robin Zebrowski. And of course, all of the fantastic track heads.

First, here's the link to the Daily Dragon online. If you have a question, checking there is a good place to start.
The links to the most recent Pocket Program and grid can be found HERE on the Daily Dragon website. Any updated versions will be posted there. NOTE: The Walk of Fame information on page 58 is currently incorrect. The whole Walk of Fame will be in the Hilton (not in the Marriott).
Schedule changes are HERE. This page will be updated throughout the weekend. Most of these changes will also appear in the print version that's distributed at the con. They'll also be included in The D*C Late Show broadcast each morning on D*CTV. Also, the schedule in the D*C mobile app will be updated as often as possible.
Keep in mind that we don't make the schedules; we just report 'em. When it comes to complaints about schedule changes, we're not the droid you're looking for. ;)
A staple since the beginnings of the largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film in the universe! Join us as we bring you audio drama for a modern time or, as we like to call it, New Old-Time Radio!

I've tried it out a lot. It is really, really slow and doesn't always work as planned. Try clicking things multiple times. But it is seriously awesome to have this the week before the con.
