This year NamesCon has decided to take the show out of the bright lights of Sin City and into the City of the Violet Crown, aka Austin, Texas.
Austin, the state capital, is a wonderful city full of energy, driven by 50K+ students at U of T…go Longhorns! In addition, it has USA’s only Formula 1 track, is the US capital of live music, has incredible weather (if you like the sun), and has become a hotbed of technology companies following the lead of Dell, and others in the tech space, who make their home there.
Oh, and we can’t forget the food – from Texas barbecue to fine dining, Austin has it covered, and then some. But topping all this are the people of Austin. Whether they are born there or not, Austinites are proud people and carry a southern charm with hospitality that stretches across the city from the moment you arrive until you depart.
Given this, it is not surprising Austin currently ranks as the best place to live in the US.
Like always, I am sure the wonderful people at NamesCon will put on a great show and having it in Austin will only help.
If you plan to be at NamesCon and would like to meet up to discuss .blog with us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’d be happy to set something up.
