If you’re in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, you owe it to yourself to come to Intervention 6 at the Hilton in Rockville, Maryland this weekend. The con, which started about a half-hour ago and goes until 4:00pm on Sunday, is about creativity and the internet, and gaming, and communication, and many fun things related to all of those. And I’m going to be there, for the sixth straight year, as a panelist talking mostly about geek parenting and blogging.
All the pertinent info on the con can be found on the official website. It’s been a ton of fun every year, and the con founders and runners Oni Hartstein and James Harknell are awesome people who are (or at least seem) more interested in attendees having a good time than in making money on the con. They’re the same folks who ran the amazing (Re)Generation Who convention this past March (and which will be happening again next year), and as someone who’s been to more cons than he can remember I can honestly say I’ve never had more fun at a relatively small, personal convention than at the ones they run.
If you have geeklets at home, they always have a great track for kids, which this year is a Spy Camp – and what kid doesn’t like spy stuff?
If you do make it there, please say “Hi” and introduce yourself to me if you see me – I always love to meet GeekDad’s readers!
