Intervention 2013: Registration rate increases June 30 at midnight – book now!

I really hope you can come to my convention this year! Intervention (a combination of the words “Internet + Convention”) is the best educational conference for DIY creators PLUS a fun gaming con. We have people who actually do cool stuff teaching you how to do it and selling their wares. Harknell and I created the event in 2010, and this will be our fourth year running the event.

If you want to learn how to DIY with technology there is no better place. If you don’t create and just want to just see the brightest and best creatives and Thought Leaders there is also no better place to meet them and purchase their stuff!

We are “The Premier Showcase of Online Creativity”.

We also have one of the best Video Gaming rooms I have ever seen. Thanks to Wes Mason and his team we have everything from a Commodore 64 hooked up to a flat panel to the most recent gaming systems. We have just added an Ouya to the room this year.

We also have board gaming programming and tournaments!

You have just until June 30th at midnight to get the lowest price for tickets to the event so it’s in your best interest to act now. Not only do you save money but your registrations and donations help us make this happen!

Hallow Inc’s Urban Haunted House is gets ready for year 2 – September 2013

Hallowinc in Rockville MD has released some images for their second year of haunting. The did a great job last year. I wonder what they have planned for this year?

“The sky and earth were scorched with hopes to contain the virus.
No one could have predicted the horrific chain of events that would follow.
The infected mutated into new forms and the new strain seems unstoppable.
Darkness pervades the land and all who survive seek refuge underground.
Their solace is only temporary; fate seems to always find a way.
Mankind is on the verge of extinction.”
