I may take this year off from Gnomedex. Not that i don’t enjoy it immensely but because i am sick of spending rare sunny summer weekends indoors geeking out. Family and outdoor leisure time is so scant and August is the stretch run before the months of drizzle begin anew. I am always spieling forth for fall/winter confabs instead.
Here’s some flashback videos from previous years:
- Catching up with Gnomedex
- Gnomedex Recap with EMP Action
- Kickin’ Back at the Hotel Room
- Science fiction and Impressionists
and the Canadians take over Gnomedex
