NB: trying to get back into blogging in 2017. We all know how New Year’s resolutions tend to go, but hey – Gonna try!
I’ll be attending Arisia in at the Westin Boston Waterfront hotel from January 13-16. I’m waiting to see what Friday the 13th at a con has to produce. I expect costumes, people; Friday the 13th costumes.
While there, I’ll be presenting, trying to nab some audio, and generally trying to catch up with people. Here is my schedule. Drop me a note if you’d like to be part of this schedule!
Friday, 5:30pm, Burroughs room
