DSC_1338Hello everyone!

 

 

The Anthrocon 2012 schedule is pretty much done!  We have SO many fun things on the grid, it's really going to be a SUPER FUN weekend.  I am posting this initial link to the schedule grid and the descriptions...so that all of you can take a look and start thinking about those fun events that you want to attend!

There may be *slight* tweaks to the schedule, but this should be pretty close to the final product that you will see in the con program.

You can view the schedule here.

Take a look.  and remember...the convention is only a few weeks away.  Wait a minute...THE CONVENTION IS ONLY A FEW WEEKS AWAY!!?!?!?!?!?!?

 

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK!

*runs around with arms flailing*

My name is still misspelled under Best Furry stuff...

I assume the Opening Ceremonies will be taped and uploaded, as I'll probably choose the Seriously Funny panel over them...

Hmm, must have been an odd security setting in Firefox, because you are correct, using Chrome (which is not nearly as secure as my Firefox settings) allows me to view the document without logging into Google.

Come to think of it, something recently happened with my email where I can no longer view it through Firefox.  I've changed nothing on Firefox since I got this computer, so they must have recently changed something server-side that Firefox is blocking.

Anyway, that aside, I can now see the schedule.  Thanks!

Have you possibly tried just clearing your cache and seeing if maybe that helps alleviate the problem?

I know a copy will be printed and in the con-pack, but are there any plans to make it available in an iCal or similar format so those with suitable phones can import the schedule ?

Greetings,

My screen name is also Shiriak, and I will be hosting the panel "Public Speaking for Everyday Life". If there are any questions for me that you'd specifically like me to chat about at the convention, please let me know. I'm honored and excited to be presenting (Even if most people will be at Story Time).

I will also be available for in-person chats both before and after my presentation. I look forward to seeing you there!

Sincerely,

Akiya/Shiriak

The phone apps are third party projects and the Anthrocon staff don't support them.

Actually - Although folks are used to SemJay and Alkali, I'm one of the Whose Lion people too! (http://en.wikifur.com/wiki/Whose_Lion_is_it_Anyway)

You want a Whose Lion?  If there's room anywhere, I can gladly oblige!  Might be a slightly different mix of games, but just as silly!

I will take your comments as a compliment...and think that the programming staff did a good job in building an event list that the convention (and the fandom) can be proud of. Smiling

It is a major compliment to both you as Programming staff, and the panelists themselves, that the Con is stuffed to the brim with pure AWESOME.

MY problem is I have such a wide range of interests that are addressed in panels througout the Con.  If only I *did* have a Tardis!

I hate you for scheduling Doctor Rat and Aaron Neathery at the same time as the opening ceremonies.  Hate you.

"hate" seems a bit harsh (unless you were semi-joking), but I'm not pleased with it either Annoyed
As I noted elsewhere, I'm going to assume/hope OC will be recorded and uploaded, so I'll probably go to the panel myself.

I'm also not thrilled that the MLP panel overlaps the end of the Masquerade - I haven't decided what to do about that one; it's probably not that easy to leave in the middle of the latter given that the ballroom's darkened...

Time machine.  Maybe, if I can't find a Tardis, I can use a DeLorean.  ;-D

Are you offering to run one? I saw demand for a Homestuck panel at the last minute, so I offered to run one and asked if it was too late, which it wasn't. This is how the Homestuck panel got on the schedule. You could do the same for Science Fiction if you want next year.

Panels run almost entirely on a volunteer basis.  The best way to get a panel started is to suggest and run it yourself. :>

Not sure if this was mentioned before, but will oversized posters of the schedule be put up on easels in strategic locations like what was done for AC2011 last year?

See http://www.anthrocon.org/registration for the On-Site Registration Schedule. Pre-Registration is similar hours, except:

  • Pre-reg pickup begins at noon on Thursday, and
  • Late-night Pre-reg pickup will be available in ConOps, room 309, from about half an hour after the close of Registration until 2am, each day. This is pick-up only, and Photo ID must be in impeccable shape.

I was wondering if I could know who was running the MLP meet, cause I have a huge MLP bag that I'm willing to give up as a givaway at the event.  I have no use for it, I got it for free, so no loss on my part.

 

said bag: http://sphotos.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-snc6/149361_431722383513308_100000266505727_1586980_1819722737_n.jpg

Well, the official? schedule doesn't list presenters unless you click the individual categories, in this case fandom, whereas the unofficial? schedule has hyperlinks/pop-ups for each event; in either case, it's Tim Kangaroo - suggest you drop him a PM over there as I don't think he's a member here.

Will there be a PDF version of the pocket schedule? I'd like to print it out before the con and neither of the above formats really work for that Annoyed
