Keep Portland weird (and smart): Attend the ROFLCon Summit for free
It’s always nice to see new conferences popping up in town. Especially conferences that bring such a random assortment of folks into one place.
ROFLCon Summit is a spin-off of the wildly awesome biennial ROFLCon. It’ll bring together the leading generators, preservers and advancers of online culture so they can talk about where it’s all headed and what it means to everyone else. It’s an open discussion about why the very same communities that are good at making dumb, funny things online are having a real impact on the world. Join us on October 1st, 2011 in Portland, Oregon for the first-ever ROFLCon Summit to address the incredible potential of the Internet, virality, the blogosphere, and beyond!!!
What kind of people speak at this sort of thing? Well, Portland’s Andy Baio is on the docket. So is Ben Huh from the Cheezburger Network, as well as folks from Reddit, Memefactory, Internet Archive, BoingBoing, Know Your Meme, Buzzfeed, and Urban Dictionary, among others.
And they’re all right here in your backyard on October 1.
Shoot. If only you could go.
Well, you can. You can register for ROFLCon Summit right now. All it takes is $35. And then you’ll be filled with a feeling of awesomeness. And potentially rainbows and unicorns.
But guess what? There’s something more. You might even be able to go for free.
That’s right. Free awesomeness. Because I’ve got five passes I can give away. How can you win one? Comment below telling us why you deserve a pass to the summit and we’ll see if it garners the favor of the masses. Or me. Or whatever.
Long story short, best comments win.
