Interviewed about Containment by John Joseph Adams

Because I’ve been making updates to Containment and trying to get it filled up with next year’s conventions, I happened to stumble across an old interview that John Joseph Adams did with me on Tor.com: Convention Finder Makes It Easy to Plan Geektastic Getaways. I had completely forgotten that I did it.

Backstory: in 2008 John Joseph Adams (hugo award nominated editor/anthologist, for those who need a clue) mentioned on his blog that he was looking for a list of conventions that was searchable by ZIP code. I stepped up to the challenge and had a working version shortly thereafter. Containment was born. John then interviewed me which helped get the word out about the new site.

Seeing this interview made me realize that I’ve been interviewed quite a number of times. I’ll have to track down all of my previous interviews and put up the links.

Containment convention open pimp thread

I’ve repaired some of the twitter scripts, so, this is an invitation for all geek (science fiction, fantasy, horror, anime,steampunk, etc.) conventions to pimp themselves in this thread (and submit their info on Containment).

Leave a comment here that tells me why your con is special. Feel free to make it as long as you like, but if your comment contains multiple links then it’s likely to go into moderation (so please be patient while it’s in the queue).

Conventions who post a comment under 140 characters in length will have their pimps tweeted to the @confinder timeline for all 733+ followers to see (don’t forget to include your twitter account and the #pimpage hashtag in the comment). For example:

@Yourcon is the largest steampunk con in Eastern Gwandanaland, with extra special guest: Willie Wonka #pimpage

All right, now have at it!
