WindyCon 2013

  • to
  • The Westin Lombard Yorktown Center

    70 Yorktown Shopping Center, Lombard, IL (map)

    41.842720 -88.002823

  • Lobby, 11 AM
  • Fun fact: WindyCon is actually the reason this group exists. In the past, the (in?)famous Eric Raymond has run a popular 'Geeks with Guns' panel, and they supported me in building and marketing this meetup. So, it's fair to put it on the calendar.

    The con goes all weekend, but if people would like to formally meet for lunch, let's do so at 11AM on Saturday, in the lobby. I will be there all three days.

    Tickets can be purchased during limited hours at the event, or online here:


    Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, Fans of all Ages, Shapes, and Sizes:

    Welcome to Windycon 40 and The Big Tent!

    Has the circus come to town? No, not really. For Windycon 40, we’re celebrating science fiction and fantasy in all of their forms and mediums, because they’re all good. We all come to fandom from different places, whether it’s from reading books, comics, or manga; whether we get our SF and fantasy fix from movies, TV, or anime; whether we’re bloggers, or fanzine publishers, or filkers, or gamers, or costumers; whether we’re computer programmers, or chemists, or shop clerks, or professional artists and authors.

    I'm not going to RSVP, due to a bunch of things going on on that day for me, but most of them are taking place in the Lombard area. So if I get a chance I will swing by and say high to everyone.

      So I have taken a long look at what fits my personal look and the best I can do is Kevin Smith type cosplay.
