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 live.twit.tv. Here’s the full schedule
