I have dreamed of coming to Minnesota since I was twelve years old and fell in love with the epic “Weird Al” song “The Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota”:
And now I’ve been here (though not at the twine ball, sadly) having a blast at CONvergence since Thursday. I think my panel contributions on the theme of the Philosophy of Batman got across the points I was most passionate about related to that subject and seemed to be very well received. I hope to polish up and expand on those thoughts in future posts, so stay tuned. (Especially as I will be seeing Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and Dark Knight Rises in the theater as part of the DKR premiere!
But most of all I have had a wonderful time getting to know some of my fellow bloggers face to face after communicating together for so long through the internet. It’s also been a serious treat to meet various Skepchicks, so many Freethought Blogs readers, and a surprising number of people who know Camels With Hammers. I only wish I had the time to blog something interesting for the new people I may have enticed to read the blog with my mesmerizing face to face salesmanship.
