I have decided that I will be checking out a Convention on Saturday called “Intervention.”
September 21-23 2012
Hilton Washington DC/Rockville
1750 Rockville Pike, Rockville, Maryland 20852
From Friday 12pm to Sunday 4pm
I have never been to this con before and thought it would be fun to check it out. I’m friends with a lot of people who are running this con on Twitter and they have really been kind enough to even ask me to attend.
For those who don’t know, “Intervention” is an “internet convention” which is meant to Intervene and Inspire the whole family to embrace Technology, Digital Media, and the potential of the Internet in order to make a better world. Their community-centric event consists of 2 elements:
– Learning from the pros: They have 3 days of panels and workshops taught by people who are already using digital media to make something awesome.
– Having fun: Geeky performances, fan panels, gaming, dance parties, steampunk tea parties, concerts, networking, and Children’s Programming overseen by school teachers, NASA employees, and Wired.com bloggers.
They are a new kind of fan convention that focuses on education and real life training. We believe that fandom is empowering and motivating.
It’s $25 at the door on Saturday so I have to see you there!!!
