I always get a kick out of "outsider" views of this industry and its fans. I am so bummed I can't go this year... :cry:

Great article. Thanks for the link, Jason!

The part I found most interesting:

Success has given the Con a roving eye – organizers have looked at other cities – and envious rivals.

CCI: Denver sounds pretty good to me. Better than CCI: Rochester or CCI: Anchorage.

Or howbout CCI: Vegas? :P

People have tried cons in Vegas before, but what ends up happening is by Saturday afternoon everyone realizes they are in Vegas and ditch the con.

That's why San Diego works so well, it's nice, but there is nothing else to do except go to the con.

Oh there's plenty to do in SD, but how can you compare to the filthy sin of Vegas? Especially when 75% of your con-goers have never talked to a live female? :lol:
