Bwa. *boggles* I was told to look at Camp Fandom 2.0 less as an event but rather as a movement to start discussions in the community. It is a fantastic idea. Things need to go beyond the event. Discussions and understanding need to happen.
That aside, please help promote Camp Fandom 2.0. Seriously. It is a free event. It is being held in Chicago on March 21 and March 22 so out of towners can have reason to attend by being a two day event. The people attending get to set the discussion. It should be free of race wank… If you’re a professional author, it is a great way to discuss say the issues of dealing with fans, managing your on-line presence, etc. If you’re involved with conventions, you can talk about the challenges of doing that. If you’re a vidder, you can bring your computer and make vids, or talk about the process of making vids, where to host it, etc.
If you want to be in on the planning, we’d love to have you. Just drop me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll tell you more about what we’re doing behind the scenes.
