04:23 pm - I thoroughly enjoyed CONvergence
I greatly enjoyed CONvergence this year. I liked the fact that they extended it to 4 days. There were a few good panels and I enjoyed those. No panelists irritated me to no end this year and that's a big plus. The room parties were good.
I also met up with inclementine who I hadn't seen since an LJ meetup a long time ago. And that was a whole heck of a lot of fun.
The negatives were that there wasn't nearly as much friend schmoozing as I would like (at least partly my fault). I didn't enjoy the hotel room situation very much, and I think I will choose to avoid staying with people who are not close friends in the future. I wasn't unhappy with the people I stayed with exactly, it's just not the same.
But, there were some other big positives (one I haven't mentioned here) that made up for that. So, I'm really happy I went, even though I couldn't really afford it.
