Eventually the road filled with mysterious beings coated in sparkles and green paint, their gossamer wings floating in humid Southern air. They were followed by a troupe of mournful vampires, a couple of Spider-Mans, Aeon Flux, Superman, a fleet of Klingons on motorcycles, a mass of Harry Potters, assorted characters from Babylon 5 and of course an entire phalanx of stormtroopers marching more or less in formation behind a gaggle of Princess Leias.
I really haven't had time to write up my own comments from DragonCon, but it was a really excellent weekend. Its an intersection between people who make things like role playing games and people who make things like space elevators. Its where the dreamers meet, and you can grasp onto outlandish ideas that will one day be considered everyday things.
