Countdown to TypeCon2006!

Miss Tiffany's picture

Now that you can register, I think we need a thread dedicated to: Who is going? When are you arriving? When are you leaving? Where are you staying? and for some, Who needs a roomie?

I'm arriving on the 7th and going home on the 14th. I'm staying at the Hyatt, the official conference hotel.

Only 48 Days until the T-Party begins!!

I am arriving at 10am on the 8th. Leaving a week after the conference is over. Staying with family on Mass Ave.

JLT and I will be there for the duration. I think it's safe to say you all know in which room the party's at.

I arrive Tuesday the 8th at suppertime, leave Sunday night and am staying at the Hyatt. I'm really looking foward to this!

I am arriving on the 9th just in time for Thomas and Adam's workshop and leaving Monday morning--staying at the conference hotel as well. William Berkson is sharing a room with me.

Chris and I will focus on the stuff really important to the over 60 crowd.

That means for the late night party come one come all--to Stephen's room.

We'll be asleep :)

I plan to be there August 11-13, and I am looking for a roommate! I live in New Haven, Connecticut. Anyone interested in rooming with me? :)

Gee, then...
could I drop by when it's my senior nap time? ;-)
I'll bring prune juice and Fig Newtons!

I will be arriving the 7th and leaving the 14th and staying at the Hyatt. Now that Stephen has proclaimed his room the "party room", I may have to challenge him to a duel. Oh, we shall see where the real party at.

Damn, I have to work, you fellow-freaks, annual report season's a-comin'.

Prune juice is welcomed Norbert but you will have to park your walker outside.

How shall we meet up? The only person I met last year was Yves but am very excited about meeting/chatting with others.

Stephen Coles's picture

Pasting our Typophile icons on our conference badges might be a good start.

Last year I didn't know a soul. When I walked into the conference hotel bar and saw a bunch of folks wearing typographic T-shirts, it all became cleartype to me :-)

> Pasting our Typophile icons on our conference badges

I started using my Typophile avatar on my personal business card late last year. It's funny that some people I've met for the first time now recognize the icon before they read my name.

Just goes to show you how widely this forum is visited.

"...some people I’ve met for the first time now recognize the icon before they read my name...."

Would they be named Harpo? :-)

dave bailey's picture

Oh sweet, good idea, Stephen.

Miss Tiffany's picture

David, didn't we meet? Perhaps I've confused some people. Who was handing out the cute little buttons in the bar?

dave bailey's picture

I think I met Tamye and Shu, but it was a bit overwhelming and I was only a volunteer last year. I probably checked all your badges at the auditorium at least once, heh. I did also help Rob Keller setup his Ceramic Type exhibit.

rob keller's picture

Yeah! Thanks again David, you were a big help. Hopefully I will be there this year, maybe with some new art type stuff.

This year I get to enjoy the conference to mingle with and meet new people!

dezcom's picture

David, You might meet some OLD people too--like me and Norbert :-)

Just thought I'd bump this thread to the top of the forum, while letting the crowds know that I'm booked into the Hyatt as well. Arriving on the 9th, leaving (surely with a tear in my eye) on the 14th. Can't wait to meet up with everyone again...

Chris, you're not that old.

dezcom's picture

"Chris, you’re not that old."

Thanks Grant, but why then does the AARP have me on speed-dial? :-)

ChrisL

dave bailey's picture

I'm down for meeting new AND old people!

Tamye,

When I go to the typecon page, the only clickable object I see is for the Hilton. I can't get to the registration page or anywhere else. I tried to send an e-mail to info@typesociety.org and it was returned as undeliverable. I don't know if you aware of these problems, so I decided to post here. Anyone else having issues?

Thanks,

Kristin

Kristin,
I had no problem. It may be you have an older version of the page cached in your browser. Try this link:

Miss Tiffany's picture

Kristin! Are you coming this year!!??

kristin's picture

I'm coming, Tiff. And it's on the Bullseye! Woo-hoo!

Chris,

Thanks for the advice, but I have already registered. I'm just worried that other folks may have the same problem. And the e-mail thing is a bummer, too.

Kristin

Miss Tiffany's picture

Yey!!!!

tamye's picture

Kristin, I'm so glad to hear that you're coming this year!

We were aware of the problem with some browsers retaining old versions of the site in their cache. Emptying the cache or force reloading the page makes the problem go away - at least, that's what we've heard.

As for the email bouncing... all I can say is that we do have intermittent problems with both incoming and outgoing email. My number is buried in the contact area of the SOTA site - if you ever need me, give me a call.

If you could try forwarding that bounced email with the headers intact, I will show it to our provider so he can investigate.

See you soon!

Just a reminder - TypeCon2006 early registration ends tonight, and some of the workshops are full or dangerously close. Now is the best time to register to get the lowest price and the workshops of your dreams!

crossgrove's picture

BUMP

Tamye's more right than ever; I waited to register and the workshops I wanted are full! Register quick, even though the main program isn't posted in detail yet....

tamye's picture

You should always listen to me, Carl... Seriously ;)

crossgrove's picture

Huh what? Did you say something Tamye?

; D

dezcom's picture

Carl,
You should know that the last person that refused to listen to Tamye was found at the bottom of San Francisco Bay with two Ludlow machines for shoes!

Tiff just posted about our new fundraiser at TypeCon. All those lovely items you've been saving for an auction can now be donated to the Curiosity Cabinet in the TypeCon marketplace. Proceeds benefit SOTA's educational activities.

Check it: http://typophile.com/node/21405

tamye's picture

Oh wow. I forgot about those Ludlow boots, Chris. He was a real leadfoot...

Miss Tiffany's picture

Only 19 days!! Holy goat cheese!!

dezcom's picture

What a Feta-ing remark Tiff:-)

OK, kids, the program timeline is now on the TypeCon website. You can see when your pals are speaking. Please note that we are starting an hour later on Sunday so that everyone can enjoy the Saturday night party :)

Full details on each session will be posted shortly.

Also, we have a blog now! http://www.typecon.com/talk

Feel free to visit and comment on posts. Sign up for the RSS feed - it's fun and handy. Email me privately if you want us to post about something (related to TypeCon, of course!)

i would like to recommend to anyone with an interest in classical art that they visit the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. It is, imho, one of the most underrated museums in the country, and the building is spectacular - a sort of Italianate Victorian / Moorish / English A&C castle on the edge of downtown, very near the fine art museum and almost next door to MassArt. They also have a great cafe, one of the better museum gift shops anywhere, and a beautiful courtyard. I'll certainly be going, and would happily take long anyone else who wishes to visit. The T goes right there, too, I believe.

I arrive on the 8th and leave Sunday evening (the 13th). Staying at the Hyatt like most folks.

I look forward to seeing lots of Typophile regulars there!

T: And do we get the pleasure of hanging out with Miranda?

JLT: I might let you take me to this place. If they have an air conditioner, they are my friend.

tamye's picture

It's just 10 day's 'til TypeCon...

I'm going to Boston Saturday - I can't wait to get there and see everyone.

There is a great lobby bar/lounge area at the Hyatt where we could join up for cocktails... anyone up for meeting there on Monday evening to get the party started early?

crossgrove's picture

I'll be there Tuesday evening.

tamye's picture

Carl, there'll be a bunch of us in the bar on Tuesday night, too...
