ConCarolinas 2018 Results

Things went really well at ConCarolinas 2018 Gaming – partially because I really worked hard on my attitude and partially because people are starting to understand the system.   There are a few areas I need to improve on still but

For all the things I built, how quickly they collapse

At one time, I was proud to be at the center of THAT convention.  I was proud that I built it from 300 attendees to 1300.  I was proud to have hosted the largest attended Deep South Con (2010) since

2 days out and blah…

About this time 5 to 10 years ago, I was excited and crazy busy with convention stuff. I did not even have time for real work, I am ashamed to say. My career took a back seat to my hobbies.
