My CONvergence 2012 Schedule

We're just a few short days away from CONvergence 2012. As always, it looks like it's going to be really massive, and there's a lot of blood, sweat, and tears that have gone into this year's convention.  The volunteers who help run it and keep it going do a lot, as well as everyone else who attends.

There are a lot of things that I'm looking forward to on the Schedule.  Three highlights of mine:

I'm sure that I could list another half dozen items, but that's just a great start.

My own schedule consists of:
  • Convergence Events Open Meeting (Thursday, 9:30 AM)
    • Learn about what CONvergence Events is working on outside of CONvergence. If you love the convention, here is your chance to enjoy our events all year round! 
  • The Avengers (Saturday, 11:00 AM)
    • By the time the convention arrives, we will know if the combined testoserone on screen was a success or failure. Did Joss satisfy the faithful? Are we looking forward to a sequel or dreading it?
  • If I Could Restart The Universe (Saturday, 12:30 PM)
    • The 52 reboot gave DC writers the chance to build a new universe for their character. if you could build a new Comic universe for your favorite character, what would you do? 
  • Conventions Beyond CONvergence (Saturday, 2:00 PM)
    • There are a lot of other conventions out there from the large Dragonconand Comiccon, the historic Worldcons, and conventions like Diversicon, Arisia, or Capricon in every city around the country. What makes each unique? 
  • Matt Smith Continued (Saturday, 5:00 PM)
    • The Doctor, River, Rory and Amy Pond returned to do battle with The Silence and all manner of other things that go bump in the cosmos. Discuss your favorite moments from the second half of Matt Smith's second season! 
  • Once Upon a Time (Sunday, 12:30 PM)
    • This show remixes fairy tales with a modern take for weekly television. What makes this show such a huge success?
I'll also be a part of Opening & Closing ceremonies. 

It's going to be an epic event -- we're going to have over 5,000 people there, and hundred of people will help pull together to make it happen.  Hope to see you there.
