I see that membership of the 2012 Discworld Convention has already reached the half century (excluding guests and committee).

Pretty impressive for 90 minutes. At this rate, it will be sold out before tomorrow evening, but I expect it to slow somewhat.

I'm reckoning on a spike in the early evening as people get home (those not permanently online) and then for things to slow down.

Hmmm, I've been thinking about going since everyone has a great time. But I'm not that much of a Pratchett fan.

And? Our son hasn't read any of the books, despite growing up around Pratchett fandom, and has gone to the last few. He'll spend half his time helping with tech and the rest being a social butterfly ;) Not all of the programme items are totally DW themed (though there's usually some relationship). We have guests who cover a number of interesting fields and they'll no doubt have an item or two covering their own speciality.

http://www.dwcon.org/media/uploads/files/Discworld_Convention_2010_Programme_book.pdf is a copy of the Programme book for 2010 - there's a timetable and a listing of each item with a quick description, just to give you an idea of what I'm talking about :)

Yes, it was a little frustrating to see it launched while I was trapped in a conference and unable to register immediately.

It's good to hear that. Many conventions have been suffering in the downturn, I hear.

Eastercon in Brum has ~ 835 members currently.

That's not a bad number for an Eastercon this century. Not as high as the Heathrow ones, but still good. And that excludes walkins.
