[personal] JayCon VIII report

JayCon VIII was a rocking success. Something between 50 and 75 people attended, far too many for me to sensibiy list here. rosefox won the farthest-away virtual prize, followed by the_flea_king and his lovely spouse. Bunch of folks came down from Seattle as well.

Most of all, I was there, alive and kicking. We had music courtesy of jackwilliambell, and stories read aloud in the stead of kenscholes by davidlevine, biomekanic and newroticgirl. Lots of photography was committed, lasirenadolce came up with the cake of a lifetime, and everybody rocked.

Plus we managed a very fine after party at the Alibi, a funky tiki bar in North Portland.

Reports from the field:
