With the month of August now started, the end of summer is nearing - though we still have some nice weather ahead of us. And after summer comes fall (or autumn), which is the season of a bizarre world wide phenomenon amongst a particular class of geeks. This bizarre behavior, scientifically known as the Icelandic late fall migration, happens in November of each year and sees a number of mmorpg playing geeks travel to the remote northern island country.
The more intuitive, informative, and EVE addicts will have guessed by now that I referring to the EVE Fanfest 2007!! Those lucky few, who will be part of this migratory pattern, will witness some interesting events, learn fascinating new features of EVE, and thoroughly enjoy themselves, while feasting on various incapacitating beverages.
Unfortunately, I won't be partaking in this year's Fanfest, which would have been my first. The birth of my daughter earlier in the year, work travel schedule and different vacations plans, makes it difficult to attend this year's community gathering. I still wish I could go, but I have to settle for news and fan videos as I've done in the past (here and here).
Since I'm not going, I'm curious to know who amongst you is. Let me know in the survey at the top of the right side bar. I'll leave it up a bit longer than usual, say mid-August, to have a good overall picture of who's going or not. And while you're at it, please let us know by commenting if you've been to any of the previous Fan Fest. I'd love to know!
In the mean time, the Montreal EVE Player Gathering I'm organizing is coming up this Saturday! So far we should be about 12 to 15. Should be quite interesting. I'll be taking the camera with me and will be sharing the event with you in Sunday's post.
