I don't do a lot of conventions. This is partly due to lack of money and partly due to dislike of flying, especially since the TSA came into existence. I find the searching humiliating, and I think it is unnecessary. (See Bruce Schneier on security theater.)

However, I go to Wiscon every year and will be there again this May. The Science Fiction Research Association is meeting at the same time at the next hotel over from Wiscon, and I am a guest at SFRA. So I will be going back and forth between the two cons.

I'm also attending Minicon, a local Twin Cities convention, in April and Diversacon, another local con, in August. I will probably be at CONvergence, a very large local con, over the 4th of July.

So that is my schedule this year.

Hi, I'm planning to attend Wiscon also and am looking into travel arrangements. Do you have a recommended mode? The megabus? rent-a-car?

Laramie -- I have gone by bus to Wiscon. The walk from the terminal is a bit long. I think a cab would be a good idea. Renting a car gets you right to the hotel. I have never gone via Megabus. I don't know what kind of experience it is.
