Okay, read it?
Anything else you’d like to know about the convention? You’ve got a guest list, a location, admission price, some of the swag, anything else?
Like, oh, I don’t know, the date and time?
Fortunately we have the Internet to answer that question, as a quick trip to their website reveals that it’s February 15.
Now if they’d just make an effort to post a schedule more than one month in advance…
(I was so tempted to call this post “Press Release Fail,” but I think there’s too much Fail on the Internet as it is.)
