05:48 pm - MediaWest ends and the Journey home
Well the conventions over and now I'm back home, I'm going to post the highlights, form the convention hotel to the costume contest (funny I didn't go shuttercrazy while there). Mediawest was as I remembered it from way back almost 20 years ago mix of a relaxacon/slashcon with video rooms and panels thrown in, not as big as Balticon but I was more than able to get my Dr. Who fix there. One thing that does stick with me are the sheer number of folks with an open door policy to their rooms, weather they were selling out of them, extending panel discussions, throwing parties, or just having improtu gatherings to shoot the breeze. It's like a mini con suite every few doors down.
