Yes, I’ve been kinda quiet about this year’s Dragon Con, at least on here. Truth is, I’d only just finished off processing all the videos from last years convention, which came to 21 videos totally 22 hours. You can find the playlist with them all here.
After the 8 of last year, I’ve cut down to save my voice and my sanity, to a more standard 4.
Of course, throughout it all I’ll still be beavering away in Hilton 201, making sure that the EFForums track runs smoothly (as befits the track’s Assistant Director)
In case you’re wondering why I’m not listed in the app, that’s because I didn’t think I’d be able to come until after the schedule had been locked so that the app could be made and the programs printed. Nevertheless, I’m gonna be there!
