As part of my work with NRAO, I was at DragonCon this weekend to be on several science panels. For those who aren’t familiar, DragonCon is a science-fiction and fantasy convention where about 70,000 people gather in downtown Atlanta to celebrate the geeky stuff they love. I’ve never been to such a large convention, so it was an experience to say the least.
My visit to DragonCon was rather last minute, since I filled in for a colleage who couldn’t attend. So I didn’t have the time to prepare that I might otherwise have. It was a fun and interesting time, and I’d be happy to go again.
