Media*West Con and media cons: here's M-West's own history.
I've been to a few media cons. Not a lot, mind you, just a couple. Comic-Con 2007 is a media con -- and possibly Omegacon. Plus there's M-West as of this weekend. Unlike sf cons, to which I have attended oodles...
Some other time I'll talk about Omegacon 2008 (down in Birmingham, Alabama) and why it probably counted as a media/sf con.
(I'll do a little con report on M-West around month-end. Should be good -- or great! So many SH panels makes me realize they must have a large contingent of Sherlockians, huzzah.
[ETA: Or set of con reports, since I did post Fannish Friday already last weekend, out of vast enthusiasm.]
Really wish I could see oodles of you there! but M-West IS a smallish local con, sigh.)
