My team is going to ATL for the 1st time this year, and we heard from another team that described the competition as "10,000 kids jamming the Georgia Dome for 3 days…more nerds per square foot than a Star Trek convention…and more purposefully employed "
Is this true?, Because I don’t think there could possibly be a more wonderful place on earth
Well, I’ve seen much less social functionality and much more “nerdiness” at cons like Genericon… but you’re about dead on there.
Its an amazing three days and there are a lot of great things that happen outside the competition itself such as people constantly playing ultimate frisbee.
I had the chance to go last year, our rookie year, and it’s possibly the most epic thing I’ve ever been a part of. I met some awesome people, a few of whom I still keep in touch with. I can hardly describe it, it’s just that amazing
Also, a reason why I wish I could go this year:
I’ve been to Atlanta twice. Let me tell you, it isn’t just a nerd convention. The energy flowing in the Georgia Dome is incredible. There are a lot of things to do in Atl besides the Dome. All kinds of restaurants, the ballpark, aquarium etc. I was a /Parent/Mentor and loved every minute of it.
