One of the best parts of this ten year journey has been the connections I’ve made with some extraordinary people. Not everyone I’ve met has been nice, that’s for sure, but the vast majority of those I’ve interviewed have been as authentic and kind as they are talented.

For my second year in a row, I have made the Appalachian anime fanatic’s pilgrimage to Gatlinburg in the first week of December for Yamacon, in what has become a significant yearly attraction for the city.

He recently attended Yama-Con, and his approach to the convention led some reflection on how we communicate at conventions—and with people around us in general. Enjoy!

The conventions in Miami that I’m most familiar with are SuperCon and Animate, but I often don’t attend these events. However, as one of the resident gamers at Beneath the Tangles, I was intrigued when I heard about Gamer Comic Expo.
