|I just received advance information about the Picocon SF con at Imperial College next month, which I plan to attend. It looks like they've got an unusually good set of guests, and for the first time they are going to run a two-day con. I was quite keen to sign up and pay in advance so that (a) I don't have to queue at the door and (b) they have the use of the money early and can do more with it.|
This isn't meant to reflect on the con organizers, since I have to assume that the college won't let them do things any other way, but it's a real nuisance, and I suspect annoys a lot of the people who want to attend student events. I've told them why I won't be paying up front, and I hope that they'll pass on my concerns to whoever runs the site.
