Austin JournalCon

2003-08-19 20:07:07.830275+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

In the comments, Jette mentioned Austin JournalCon, which looks like a reasonable alternative to BloggerCon. Round-trip from the Bay Area looks to be in the $250-300 range (possibly less if you get Southwest at the right moment), rooms are $120/night, $65 for the con. I'm thinking about it. Don't know if Charlene would be bored silly for the weekend, anyone out there interested in perhaps splitting a room? Kick the total price of attendance down to the range of just the registration for BloggerCon and have a much more interesting crowd to boot.

Dan, you should go, just so I can finally meet you in person! Don't recall if Columbine has met you already ...

Columbine hasn't. And if y'all are going, then that's a big reason for me to go.

Tell ya what, that just happens to be my Fall break and I've been saying I wanted to see Austin again (went to high school there). Let me check air-fare and such and I'll p-mail you directly.

BTW, if I do some diggin', I may be able to find some friends down there still and we could save the hotel costs...
