Notacon 8 is only 76 days away!

Just a reminder that you only have a few more days to submit your proposal to present at this years Notacon and PixelJam. Our call for proposals officially ends at the end of the day on Monday, January 31st. Our committee will then go through the proposals, select presenters and notify everyone who submitted by February 15th, if not sooner.

By the same token, our early registration period is almost over as well! Early registration ends at the end of the day on Friday, February 11th, 2011. After this, all prices will go to their normal levels, including group registration rates! Hence, if you want to save a little money, register soon!

CFP closes at the end of the month! Also, a new addition to the Notacon family!

Just a reminder that you have LESS THAN A MONTH to submit your
proposal to present at Notacon. Still on the fence? Don’t think you
have what it takes? Take a chance and submit something, you never

So far we’re noticing some really interesting trends in the proposals
sent in thus far. Listed below are some topics that would really gibe
with what we have on tap already:

- Do you develop Android of iPhone games or applications?
- Are you involved in game development either in video or table-top format?
- Know anything about computer graphics, 3D rendering, or data visualization?
- Have any neat new talks in the realm of computer and network security?

Those are just a few of the many topics we think would be nifty to
showcase at Notacon and PixelJam.

Below is a handy dandy link to our CFP page.

Finally, we wanted everyone to know that there’s a new addition to the
Notacon family. Last Sunday, Tyger and I had our first child, Alexa
Eris Schneider! You can be sure that she will be at Notacon. Will YOU?
