So I have never been to PAX. I have never been to a convention either. Well maybe if you count SRGE. I think it has been from fear of the crowds and fear of the overly enthusiastic people. I like cool things, but there are definitely the people that go MUCH farther than me in the direction of loving things and making their life revolve around those things. However, since the JCCC our sphere of geek related things has increased dramatically and there are a lot of really cool really talented people. So for the first year we got tickets. Maybe I should say, luckily we got tickets. If memory serves, tickets sold out within 4 hours. I am still a little worried about the crowds, I have no idea how bad they will be, but I am also excited. I have no idea what to really expect.
Last year and this year Alaska Robotics organized an unofficial 5k at SDCC. We thought that might be fun to do. So Beth is took the reigns to organize one for PAX, PAX Prime 5K. Because why not!? We also threw together a Facebook event just to make sure we could easily give out updates and details, etc. If you are coming to PAX you should join us!
Hope to see you there at PAX!
