#6 If you don’t know the reference…ask. If you take a step back and really think about it, the people you are keeping company with at Dragon*Con, are the programmers, animators, writers and other creatives like costume designers, make-up artists and film makers. These are the people making Sci-Fi a reality, the innovators, the talent and are the ones able to create intertwining story lines filling novels, comic books and TV shows. For an entertainment junkie like myself, it is truly an electric experience. No need to feel slow or dim witted, there is just so much information to consume. As if it wasn’t implied already, this is a group of really smart folks and they have just taken the coveted weekend off. It won’t be hard to find someone who can hold your hand through an explanation of decades of Dr. Who, spend hours theorizing about Harry Potter really being a kid with Aspergers, or discuss Joss Whedons integrity and the relevance of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in YA pop culture.
