It's time for the TypeCon "who's-going-who-needs-a-roomie-who-wants-to-carpool" thread

Who's going to TypeCon? I'm happy to help hook up roommates at the conference hotel and answer any questions. I can't wait to see everyone! I'll arrive Saturday, July 28. A little group of us are driving up to Seattle from the Bay Area - I hope we can find a way to brand the SOTA van without angering the rental card gods... I'm looking forward to this little road trip - properly documented with photos taken of signage all along the way, of course!

Yup, I assumed so but when and where?

For the love of fonts can someone, anyone, PLEASE let us know WHEN and WHERE this event is taking place - cryptic URLs and a year of publicity is no help whatsoever! Do you think I have time to visit web sites and read blogs? JUST TELL ME WHERE IT IS!

Is there a bus that runs between the Crowne Plaza and SVC, or should I just plan on walking since it’s not far anyway?

tamye's picture

We will have a shuttle bus for peeps staying at the Crowne Plaza. It's not a long walk, and the weather will be great. But the bus will be there for those who need it.

OK, weird, the first time I've ever had a double post. It's terrifying!

So I'll just mention that early bird has been extended through midnight Pacific, July 5. That's this Thursday! Some of the workshops are full now, so hurry up if you want to take one.

And this thing we call TypeCon - it's August 1-5 in Seattle! A feast of typographic goodness. http://www.typecon.com

I am looking for a roomate who is not a smoker. I do not have a reservation yet.
My tentative plans are to arrive July 31 and depart early August 6th.

Chris, I recommend making your reservation for those dates. We are likely to run out of rooms on the 31st. You can always change or cancel later if you need to, but I don't want you to be stuck without a pillow :)

I am keeping an eye out for a roomie for you.

I'm in! Registered and got a room at the Crowne Plaza. Now all I need is a plane ticket...

I live right downtown. If someone, particularly someone with no sense of shame, doesn't mind sleeping on the floor, I'd put them up for a night or two. Keys are a problem, but if you're poor...

And you have beer...

Yey! Chesh it is about stinkin' time you got back in the groove!

Just to jump in on this thread -- I'm going for the first time this year. I live about 25 miles south of Seattle, so I couldn't miss this chance. I hope I get to meet a lot of you who have only been screen icons all these years. I'm looking forward to it.

Will be lovely to meet you, Mike!

Likewise!

Chesh! I concur with Tiff’s comment, you slacker.

And Mike, I look forward to meeting you face to face, rather than comment to comment.

Ooh, I’m getting all tingly with anticipation ...

I know the locals may disagree, but I still think Nishino has the best omakase & sushi south of Tojo. I'm looking forward to a meal there.
