Planning Begins!

I know it's traditional to wait for Labor Day for dark shoes and new product, but hey, I'm a college professor, and we start early.

We have a date (March 28-29, 2008), and we have a city (Philadelphia).

So.... we want to keep this low-key, more social than political (we're not the Kossacks, who are lovely folks but have a different vibe than we do: the Student Council kids versus the Freaks and Geeks). But we did pick the date partly because it's just before the PA primary, and we might be able to get some "names." Question is: what names do we want?

Answer in comments.

Inviting the media to EschaCon 2008

This may not be such a hot idea. One of the major criticisms I read about the KosCon was the attempt to integrate the msm in with the bloggers. Here's one from TeddySanFran over at fdl.

Besides, if we did get some hot shot media people to come, it may be a bit intimidating. Just a thought.


We're starting to organize EschaCon 08, tentatively to be held in the city of brotherly love on March 29-30, 2008, a scant 3 weeks before the Pennsylvania primary. We're looking for logistical and content details here: Speaker recommendations, restaurant recommendations, anything else you can think of. Jump on it; the water's fine!
