  • Tweet Last weekend was Geek Girl Con, one of my favourite cons here in the PNW. Every year I dread the thought of crowded panels, and every year I’m pleasantly surprised at how well-organized GGC is and how accessible and inclusive it is. Even this year, where I’m told they […]

  • I am sitting here in my little office still recovering from <a href="http://www.geekgirlcon.com/" target="_blank">GeekGirlCon</a>. This year, which is the convention's third year, was again at the Conference Centre across the street from Washington State Convention Centre in downtown Seattle. Once again, the show was expertly run. Not too many crowds. Volunteers were everywhere and always helpful.

  • Tweet Another week gone by. What’s been happening here? Not too much I guess. Although I have suddenly taken an interest in LARPing after interviewing the folks at LARP Lab. You can check out my two-part interview here. Other than that, it’s been quiet. Although I did get the “OK” […]

  • This month I got to chat with Amber and Connor, some of the organizers over at LARP Lab. LARP Lab is a Seattle-based non-profit. Their goal is to bring “bite-size” LARP games to the area.
