You may know I am a fan and friend of Jesse Thorn, the radio talent behind “The Sound of Young America” podcast and radio show. Jesse has audaciously decided to throw a Con. I guess one can just DO that. It’s called MaxFunCon, it happens June 2009 in Lake Arrowhead, CA, and guests include me, Hodgman (doing the keynote), Maria Bamford, Julia Crookston, Mark Frauenfelder, Hard & Phirm, Xeni Jardin, Jordan, Jesse Go! (that being Jesse and Jordan of course), Merlin Mann, Never Not Funny, Jimmy Pardo and the cast (?) of the fabulous “You Look Nice Today” podcast. There will be hot tubbing, comedy, music and “sports” I bet.
Early registration is better, as evidenced by this discount code that gets you $20 off if you purchase tickets this week: mandelbrotset. Buy tickets! Sports!
