Fri March 29 at 6:30 PM, Anaheim Convention Center
800 West Katella Avenue, Anaheim, CA, USA (Map & Directions)
jedicus and I will be presenting at WonderCon 2013 in Anaheim, California. Our presentation is scheduled for Friday, March 29 at 6:30-8:30PM.
We're collaborating with the physicians from Broadcast Thought (their website is currently borked) who do a lot of work analyzing the portrayal of mental illness in fiction, especially TV and movies. The presentation will involve the interaction of mental illness and criminal law in a fictional setting appropriate for the con. We're trying to craft something with significant audience participation, so don't come expecting a straight lecture or moderated panel discussion.

Feel free to drop on by!

Our schedules are still a little bit in flux, but there's also the possibility of a meetup outside the con. If no one beats us to it, and if our schedules allow, we'll post a separate Event for that later in March.

I'll definitely be at WonderCon, and this sounds like a good meetup.

There are a number of good hotel lounges adjacent to the convention center for after-Con gathering as well.

Let us know when the site's working right! :)

I probably won't be able to make it to WonderCon, but I'd be in for an after-Con gathering. The OC needs more meet-ups, LA shouldn't have all the fun.

Our own site is Law and the Multiverse.

The Broadcast Thought website is here. Currently it's just got a few basic details, but it should be updated before WonderCon. To get a sense of what they do, here is an article they wrote for The New York Times and one they wrote for Wired.

valkyryn and I are both staying at the Marriott at the convention center, so that would be a convenient place to meetup after the con. I depart on Saturday the 30th, so a meetup more-or-less immediately following our presentation on Friday would probably work best for me.

I'm staying all day Saturday. Something after the presentation on Friday could work for me too.

Arbac or anyone else: if you're still interested in meeting up after our presentation on Friday, we will post here after we get out of the convention. Our presentation ends at ~8:30, so we'll be back at the hotel around 9ish. There are some restaurants and bars that are serviceable enough for a small-scale meetup if anyone is around.
