I have learned from Steve Green that some of the people responsible for the live video feeds from Corflu are planning to extend the idea to this year’s Eastercon. Apparently the broadcasts will be coordinated through a LiveJournal community called (rather appropriately) The Virtual Tucker Hotel. I quote from Fancyclopedia:
The Tucker Hotel was based on a suggestion of Bob’s, in 1952 when the ChiCon II and its prices signalled the start of the Big Convention movement, that fans simply build a hotel of their very own for holding conventions in, moving it from one site to another as required.
This is excellent news. Hopefully there will be other live coverage as well. Anyone know what hashtag we should be using?
Oh, and the con is known as LX because it is the 60th Eastercon, so the virtual coverage is called LXtra. Nice.
