New York Comic Con is approaching soon (October 13-16) and I would like for this site to have a presence of some sort. Here's what I tentatively propose:
- Up to 20 users from Gaming.SE can attend with weekend passes, courtesy of Stack Exchange
- all users in attendance will get a Stack Exchange NYCC swag package (which would possibly include the Gaming.SE t-shirt, the Gaming.SE business cards, a Stack Exchange tote bag, a Stack Exchange lanyard, etc.) to hopefully use at the con and, also, your day-to-day existence
- all users (possibly only 21+ users) may be invited to a NYCC Stack Exchange party held at a bar near the Javits Center, with free drinks and/or food for a TBD period of time
- users involved with the blog are encouraged to liveblog the event; I will try to get those users press passes
That's what I have in mind. If there's a big gap in my thinking, please fill it with your knowledge! AKA, leave a comment. In the future I could see Stack Exchange having an actual booth presence, but that's cutting it a little close for October. Starting small. But before we discuss the bullet points in detail, I really just want to know:
Are any of you already going to New York Comic Con/would you go if Stack Exchange bought your ticket?
If the answer is yes, please e-mail me at brett [at] stackexchange [dot] com with the title NYCC 2011 - Gaming.SE involvement: :
- Your name
- Your address
- What days you wish to attend
- If you wish to write content for the blog
Full disclosure, I mostly copied this post from a similar one I just put up in Sci-Fi & Fantasy. If you want, go say hi to your SE cousins and see who else is interested in this. Thanks!
