Same panels, more descriptive graphic! Science panels!
DashCon is looking for panelists! You can apply to run any number of great panels, and below we’ve listed just a few! Panelists have say in what happens in the panel, but we’ve come up with some guidelines to make things a little easier! All of the below panels are from Friday Night during the convention. Remember, if you get enough people in your panels, you’ll earn a free badge!
Science and Technology Panels:
Friday,6:00PM-7:00PM, Knowledge- Modern Gadgets: Technology of today and how it’s progressed to this point. Discussion about gadgets that awe and baffle.
Friday, 8:00PM-9:00PM, Schaumburg C- How Technology Has Changed Our Lives: Technology has advanced plenty of things in our lives, even when we aren’t looking for it or expecting it. Explore the ways it has influenced every day items, and those that inspire greatness.
Friday, 9:00PM-10:00PM, Schaumburg D - Weird Science: We live in a wacky universe and we could spend years talking about it, but all we’ve got is an hour. Join us for an action packed look at how silly our world is.
Friday, 4:00PM-5:00PM, Schaumburg A - Astrology 101: This isn’t your high school Astronomy course. We’ll explore the myth, magic, and science behind the art of divination through the stars.

Night Vale is a friendly desert community where the sun is hot, the moon is beautiful, and mysterious lights pass overhead while its inhabitants all pretend to sleep, but from July 11-13, 2014, Night Vale invades DashCon.
DashCon 2014 is proud to announce that the Welcome to Night Vale crew will be joining the guest list for our inaugural event. Attendees can expect a both a live performance and Q&A session. There will also be a private meet & greet event, where you’ll have the opportunity to meet the writers, Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor, and the voice of Night Vale, Cecil Baldwin.
Watch this space for more information on how to attend the meet & greet! For now, we can only say that you should prepare to find yourself at the meet & greet with no memory of how you got there and no obvious entry point, with only a brick and a small window provided for your eventual escape. Settle for nothing less than the full DashCon experience. ALL HAIL THE DASHCON!
But wait! Don’t be caught unprepared, Eternal Scouts:

To properly welcome Amber, who lives in the ~future~, we’ll be hosting a ‘night blogging anon hour’ tonight. We want this to be the strangest, crackiest anon hour that has ever dared exist. Don’t let her down!
Night Blogging Anon Hour will begin tonight at 11pm CST/12am EST. We’ll be sure to tag accordingly, so as not to flood your dashes. Please be on the look out for #nb anon hour (and simply #anon hour for ‘normal’ questions).
