I'm off later this morning for Chicago for the American Political Science Association meeting. Nerd factor will probably far exceed that of ComiCon, simply because there will be a much lower frequency of hot babes dressed as Star Wars Stormtroopers, and a much higher frequency of dorky middle aged men wearing dockers and arguing over statistical methodology. Good times.

And yes, I've posted this before, but it's completely appropriate:

Too bad you just missed Gencon. You could have made a quick hop to Indy. You know you wanted to.

I think it's great that the Political Science Association meets annually in Chicago. Let me guess: hot topics are 'the integrity of the voting process' and such. I guess Belarus was all booked.

Maybe we should set up a grid showing other annual academic disciplines and their annual gathering places:

- American Society of Civil Engineers - New Orleans
- Municipal Government Ethics and Effectiveness Project - New Orleans (narrowly beating out DC)
- Association of Religious Scholars - Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
- Women's Studies Annual Tea Party - Liberty University, Lynchburg VA
- Art History Symposium - Las Vegas

etc, etc.
