as California seems to have a lot more to do and isn't much farther or more expensive than SF or SD.

What?

OK so we've got a poll already but for the sake of it:

Time: I don't know when exactly I'll be in N America, because of a few other factors financial and personal, but at the moment it is probably looking like I'll be there July, and then starting work for the snow season.

Where: Anywhere. My personal preference is (in order): SF, D.C, NYC, Austin, The rest.

Timewise late June/early July would be best for me (late July is graduation time) so that it is after the exam period.

Locationwise the East coast would be better for cost but if people prefer the West coast thats fine aswell.

this is personal preference again, but the thing for me is that if everything goes according to plan i will be moving to vancouver in a year for grad school and maybe to live permanently, depending on what happens. california does sound genuinely exciting and i will still probably try to make the trip there if that's where the next meetup is, but with my future plans it just makes sense to wait until i'm several hundred miles closer to that end of the country. again, though, that's just my own bias.

I'm assuming that any meetup is going to be in the summer months, which is a ridiculous hard time for me and Jason to get time off of work. It would definitely be easiest for us to make it to a San Francisco meetup since we live within driving distance and could come for just a couple of days. We could afford to get to any of the cities suggested, but that doesn't matter if we can't get the time off of work.

Aside from our own personal convenience, I do think San Francisco would be the best place. Lots to do there, close to other places of interest if people want to get out of the city and go to the beach or redwood forests or something. The weather is mild in the summer. Plus I think we all forget just how many forumers there are that live in the western half of the country. Having another meetup in the same region (yes, I'm putting Chicago, Toronto, New York, and DC in the same region) would probably just mean another meetup of the same people. Not that the same people aren't awesome, but maybe we should give some of the younger/don't have as much money to burn/live hella far away forumers a chance to make it to a con too?

Portland would be my second choice; I just got back from there and it is a great place. Lots of great little shops, Powell's books can take all day, the public transit is free downtown, and it's just a clean looking city with great vibes. The hostel I stayed at was pretty excellent too, if we wanted to go that route again. Denver, San Diego, and Austin are maybes for me.

I don't think I'd go if it was in NYC... I used to go there every August before I went back to school and it is miserable there at that time of year. Plus there is just so much to do there and so many places to go that it isn't the kind of place that I like to go to with a large group of people. People that want to go to NYC, i really recommend that you take your own trip there and see what you want to see. I also think I'd skip out on DC... I want to go, but not during the summer tourist season.

Pick a good place this time guys, I really don't want to skip out on next year.

last year:
edith, mike, phil, tyler, julia, james, tommy, katie, mai, yelley, jason, stephen, kat, tania, james, liz, linds, johnny c, jon

this year:
edith, emilio, oli, stephen, kat, jodie, linds, may, mai, john, alex, tommy, johnny c, liz, dennis, joe hocking, jens, kris, katie

my apologies if i missed over anybody.  my point is here that i don't get what the hell everybody is talking about "avoiding the same faces".  for the most part the only people who went to both cons are the same people who are going to try and go to every one no matter where it is (probably because they are giant friendless losers irl).

if it's on the west coast, more west coast people might show.  if it's on the east coast, more europeans might show.  either way there are going to be new faces.

Yeah for those of you who never showed to Toronto I feel I ought to clarify that this account is actually me and my identical twin. We were separated at birth and given the same name before finding each other one weekend in hawaii and now we pretend to be the same person on the internet to trick people. Like that movie about magicians, except instead of wowing the world with our amazing act, we're just sort of annoying sometimes.

Yeah also that's why we double post sometimes. If this was real life it'd be amazing because you'd be like 'but he just went over there, how is he now over here!!!' but instead you're just like 'christ he's setting a bad example for the newbs now'.

now that i've given it a bit of thought, i think i'd actually prefer a dc meetup over a nyc meetup if it comes to a meetup on the east coast. nyc seems like the kind of place i'll probably visit at some point regardless because everyone seems to at least once, whereas i doubt i'll ever make a trip to dc on my own. it also sounds like dc would have more fun things for a big group of people to do.

Yeah, I am pretty sure I could take Tommy in the NYC hating event. Although, I will admit that the cops were surprisingly polite as well as nice enough not to arrest me. But really, is that any reason to laud the city? Because frankly, I'm pretty sure I should have been arrested.

I found out how much my plane tickets will cost me by next year. New York is $70. San Fran is $400. Chicago is $250-ish, and Edinburgh is $450 if I can somehow get there without going through Paris, which does not seem to be the case anymore.
