I’m not going to the San Diego comic convention this year. As an East Coaster, it’s at least a $1500 trip and a week of time off, and that’s too much for me to spend when the crowds make me nervous. I’ve seen at least three “help wanted” ads that would help compensate for being there, but none of them offer help with travel costs.
It makes more sense for me to stay home and work on things here. Plus, I’m not sure there’s anything I really need or want to do there that I can’t do in some other way.
This rundown of how few women guests there will be doesn’t make me any more eager to attend, either. There’s some very interesting discussion going on in the comments there, including some educational opportunities well responded to.
