Wow! 80% of the ennui and angst and critical assessments regarding our favorite annual event just went POOF! tonight when Joseph (one of the folks mentioned in my last post) alerted everyone to the fact that Troy Bradley, Director of Dragon*Con On Site Preregistration, has made an announcement on the Dragon*Con LiveJournal Community tonight that Dragon*Con will indeed be putting on her Big Girl Panties* and stepping up to a barcode system for next year’s pre-registrations!! This is huge and indicative that that the people behind the convention recognize a need to step it up a notch. These folks love the convention as much as you and really do listen. Echoing some of the suggestions from the incredible wave of comments to my last post, next year’s convention should try to adopt at least 5 Best Practices from the convention industry (not just Comic-Con) to make Dragon*Con 2011 the best one EVER!! A special thanks to Troy for putting it out there!!
Of course, I *am* going to miss this sight next year…..
