From the Editor
As we go to press with this issue, it’s just over a month before TravellerCON/USA 2015. In spite of the unexpected site problem, last year’s Con went off well, and we’re eagerly looking forward to this year’s, and hope to see a lot of you there.
One of the advantages to the current site is that it gives us room to grow in a managed fashion. The ConCom (of which Your Humble Editor is a member) would definitely like to grow the Con in a managed and manageable fashion—but to do so, we need to know what you’d like to see. Ideas that have been floated include panel discussions, Notable Guests, virtual gaming/membership, more/different swag… lots of interesting ideas. In order to move forward on any of them, though, we need your feedback—which ideas interest you the most, how much would you be willing to pay, and by what means (e.g., add-on fee, buy as from a merchant, or increase in membership fee), and so on. We’re going to continue to gauge initial interest via Kickstarters, as we did last year and this year; we’d also be interested in what you’d like to see as ‘stretch goals’, and at what level you think those goals should be met. Email your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
TravellerCON/USA is ultimately what you, the fans, make of it. It’s not too late to decide to come; early registration for participants closes on October 8. Come and join us!
