Denver Comic Con is just around the corner, and those of us here at Rogue Planet are busy prepping for the journey. The event runs May 23 – 26th at the Denver Convention Center and they’re expecting crowds upwards of 100k people, that’s a lot of geeks in one building.
If you’re going to be in the area, make sure to check out the panel I’m appearing on entitled, “Women in the Geek Industry”. The panel features a handful of incredible women in a diverse range of positions within the geek world and is aimed at encouraging others to pursue their dreams in the field.
