TWiT’s going to Dragon*Con. Be there with us live!

TWiT’s Brian Brushwood and myself are headed to Dragon*Con in Atlanta, Georgia, September 3-5, streaming live from one of the biggest SciFi/Fantasy /Geekfests in the world. They’ll be streaming the parade of costumed awesomeness, walking through the hotels talking with cosplayers, and sneaking into parties where nobody should probably bring a camera.

If you’re going to be in Atlanta, be sure to head to our meetup on Saturday night at 6 PM Eastern at the Sundial Restaurant in the Westin Peachtree Hotel.

Coverage begins Saturday morning at 10 AM Eastern/7AM Pacific at Here’s the full schedule

    Nerd alert! You (or something within reach of your fingers) are inserting html “br”‘s after each line – this is forcing a fixed line length – which works fine as long as one uses your font size – I don’t and so the whole paragraphs look weird (did you paste it in? πŸ™‚

    Where is the NSFW show going to be recorded? I wish I was going to be in town this year for everything. I’ll be sad to miss the parade. It is an awesome spectacle, especially last year when all of the Alabama fans that were in town for the game came off of MARTA in the middle of it looking bewildered. I half expected them to shout “NERDS!” and start giving wedgies.
