  • 1/20/08: The convention newsletter (Clear Ether) is online, at http://2008.arisia.org/Publications.
  • 1/18/08: As of the close of registration on Friday we are very close to selling out. We have 18 memberships left to sell, after which the E-board will meet and decide whether or not to extend the cap. Registration opens at 9am tomorrow morning.

    If you have pre-registered, you're okay. If you only want to come on Sunday and/or Monday, they don't count against the cap. If you are a 1 or 2 panel program participant and need to purchase a membership because you didn't get the 3 panels needed to earn a comp, you're okay (we've got your names and we've already allocated space for you when we calculate how close we are to the cap). Everyone else, if you haven't registered and you want to purchase a membership tomorrow, then get there early or pray that the E-board decides to raise the cap, or both.
