For those of you who won't be able to make it, but are curious to read more about WoW Insider's inaugural trek (no pun intended) to Dragon*Con, I've also added some information that will help you find all the latest and greatest straight from us on the convention floor.
All of our panels are pretty well set at this point, but the folks from the machinima track let me know that there was a change to their information as well as the addition of two late-night Machinima screening parties. Per a message I got from Romily:
Just a note on the Machinima 101 segment being shown Saturday morning at 10am as noted on your WoW Insider post. Unfortunately, the original copy everyone has access to says nothing about the fact that, in addition to speakers, there is an hour and a half of machinima being shown, including some award winning WoW machinima. The machinima starts Saturday at 10am with the speakers panel beginning at 11:30am.
Also - just added! Two late night machinima screenings also including WoW Machinima music videos and the award winning series "The Grind." They are happening on Sunday at 4am and Monday at 4am. They will each have unique content so be sure to come out and see both!
Before anyone asks, yes, that's 4:00 in the morning. It is indeed that kind of convention where things go on well into the wee hours. There's just that much cool stuff to see and do! But never fear -- have coffee, will travel.
Also, for those who may be new to Dragon*Con, or for those who just like to have the best information they can get, here are some fabulous links culled from all over the 'net:
- A printable map of Peachtree Center, including parking, directions, and the host hotels for Dragon*Con.
- The Dragon*Con Eats & Drinks guide, including map
- Google map of interesting things at or near Dragon*Con
- The Dragon*Con pocket program for 2007 (subject to change)
- The Daily Dragon - Your source for everything going on
- Dragon*Con TV - If you can't be there, you can see some of it, at least.
- Dragon*Con MMO - Without these guys, we'd have a lot less to cover.
