Title: KeyCon 2016 Planning, Organizing, and Fraternizing (Location selected)
Post by: HoffmanMyster on Wed, 02 March 2016, 18:29:05
KEYCON!!

KeyCon 2016 will take place in Chicago

If you are unfamiliar with KeyCon, check out KeyCon 2015 (https://geekhack.org/index.php?board=172.0) and previous (https://geekhack.org/index.php?board=169.0) events (https://geekhack.org/index.php?board=150.0) for reference.

Now let's make this happen!  KeyCon is a load of fun.  :)



Outdated info:
More
Location, date, and all other details are currently TBD.  I have created this thread/board as a place to discuss potential options and ideas.  It will be vital to have a local to the determined location take over planning and logistical responsibilities, so keep this in mind when choosing locations.

In the past we have had KeyCons in Chicago, San Jose, and Chicago.

I nominate Austin, TX. There are several GH'ers local to there who would probably be willing to help organize.

Austin would also be a good excuse to come out to Texas again.  PCPartPicker is from there too.

Last time I was there, I hung out a bit at the awesome Spiderhouse.

Agreed, there's a lot of people around the East Coast. There's a surprising amount of people in Pittsburgh to New York but don't know if anyone could organize.

Ah, very nice. Marathon is a good Keys experience without going to so far as Key West. Although I think somewhere further north may win out this year. There's always next time though! Plenty of time for me to entice people to visit the Sunshine State.  :thumb:

Everybody with suggestions for locations keep in mind that we need a local organizer that can take the reins and lead the planning/organizing of this event.  You don't want me booking a room in the ghetto cause I don't know the city.  ;)

So I would love for it to be Chicago, New York.

I may still come if it is in Austin, Seattle, Florida, California.

WHAT ABOUT VEGAS? It might be inexpensive for everyone to fly there.

I would actually still prefer Chicago though.

Title: Re: KeyCon 2016 Planning, Organizing, and Fraternizing
Post by: FLFisherman on Fri, 04 March 2016, 07:42:16
To summarize what I've seen so far:
  • Confirmed potential organizers (+ attendees) in Chicago (i3), Nashville (mashby/Incredi), and presumably Asheville (LSB)
  • Lots of interest for Austin, Bay Area, and NE coast, no organizers yet
  • Divided interest in Florida between Orlando area and South FL

Florida in general would be nice. I think Orlando would be easier to get flights to (maybe cheaper as well?). And if people are driving, it's a little closer.

I do like Florida, and I could likely make it, but Nashville is closer for more people. I can assist with Nashville planning. Nashville also nets us Booper. What does Florida get us?

 Regardless, if it is on the East coast and I can make it, I could take at least two others with me. We could split lodging, and I'll take care of the gas.

Maybe we should have a poll for East or West coast and go from there? /shrug

More breweries than anywhere else in the country in Asheville.

Also TONS of stuff to do if we make a weekend of it. Biltmore estate home and vineyard tours, brew tours, the downtown is extremely walkable with lots of coffee houses, book stores, art stores, RECORD STORES (Harvest Records is legendary).

There are also lots of cheap hotels to rent. Another very easy way to handle housing would be to rent cabins in groups, this would be quite cheap if 8 or so people shacked up in a Cabin. For the NC meetup that is more or less already planned for Ashville around the same time we were already planning on doing this.

I'm not opposed to Asheville, but bourbon > beer, every single time. =P

Seriously though, Ash or Nash is the same drive for me. I'm on board for either, but I'm promoting Nash!

I've always been against this kinda stuff at Keycon. Isn't fair for the person(s) providing services imo. Even if it's 2 days, there's not a lot of time for playing with keyboards, talking, and presentations as we've seen in the past. I'm also strongly in favor of the idea that if you're buying custom mechanical keyboards, you should be able to build your own boards. But that's just my opinion.

I understand that there are a lot of enthusiastic people in Chicago, but it was just there last year, so having it somewhere else would probably be good.

And frankly, while I would love it to be in Colorado, I think having it a little further East would be good as well since 2014 was in Mountain View. That's why I think Nashville would be a good candidate as long as it's timed correctly to avoid any large music events.

I could most likely get a room for free in Indianapolis if there was interest there from iupui.  It's close enough to Chicago that is shouldn't take away from the people wanting to go.  The downside is Indianapolis is (kind of) boring.

I live in Indianapolis and I don't recommend having a Keycon here.  Somebody seems throw out Indianapolis every time there is a Keycon discussion.  I mean, I could make the arrangements and I know all the hip spots, but come on, it's Indianapolis, the appeal is lacking in order to attract a decent crowd.

Also, have Texas and the West Coast been eliminated from the running because lack of interest from potential hosts?  Texas is great for affordable flights, the west coast is the west coast.

Nashville and Asheville are both great places, my concern is those places are going to be more expensive to fly into, reducing potential turnout.

Out of everything listed, my votes goes to Florida, because flights and theme parks.  And water parks, I love water parks, maybe I could mix this in with my Florida water park extravaganza trip.

RetroChick and LSB arent too far away (7  hour drive IIRC) and Katz is in Louisiana or Mississippi.

There are a handful of people here in Nashville, im sure we would all be down to help.

Oh, and MechanicalKeyboards.com is right outside of Nashville in Fairview (like a 30 minute drive)


What do you all think of Knoxville? Theres a decent amount of stuff to do, and Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg is right down the road

This is one of the big reasons im hoping for Nashville (or somewhere close). I highly doubt I will have the funds to make it if its outside of the southeast
It seems "Other" Is getting quite a lot of votes, maybe we should compile the top two places and vote for them, and see what the concensus is.

I was thinking Atlanta would be sweet. There's a TON of stuff to do down there

And flights will be cheaper.

But Atlanta is like the unhappy compromise between Nashvegas and Theme Park/Beach land.

Six Flags Atlanta  .. the Georgia Aquarium in ATL is NICE, the zoo is too.

Now, if Tampa is done I HIGHLY recommend doing October, I was there last year and the weather was mild and Busch Gardens was a ghost town. I would be down for Tampa if I could find someone to ride with and share a room (costs on a trip alone would be way more than I can afford)

If you make me drive into Atlanta one more time I think I'll cry.

I value my keyboards far too much to risk them in that death game they call "driving".

If before August I will need it to be close-ish to make ir, I plan to hit the Asheville meet in june (so all extra funds are being saved for that). And if I only have 1-2 months to save I won't be able to go to Florida or chicago

If people are seriously talking about Cherry/GMK tours in germany, I will be based there next year, and would be happy to do the legwork of organizing stuff.
I was just doing a bit of research, looks like Cherry is in Auerbach, and GMK is in Wernberg-Köblitz, which are literally 45 minutes apart, so it would be really easy to make a day of!
They're also both about 2 hours from München, which is basically the biggest tourist destination in Germany, so the whole gathering could be a great two-day thing.

I don't think planning an event 1,300 miles away is going to be the best thing for any of us.  -_-  Not only will I have no idea what areas are better for this sort of thing, but sampling venues will be impossible.  We need a local to step up and take over.

Oh, and apparently this has been in Chicago twice before? If only I were into keyboards two years ago  :(

Haven't most of the KeyCons been here?

This.

Since there is no general consensus, take all of the cities, put them in an RNG calculator and pick one. It's clear the forum isn't going to pick a city any time soon, and the longer we wait the less people will be able to come do to too short of a notice.

I think that's a great idea. It meets both the requirements of:

- KeyCon not held in that location the previous year
- Local person(s) to coordinate venue

Hoof you beat me to the punch. I definitely think a diff spot would be tight. TX sounds good. FL only if we all go to Harry Potter world after

I forget that people actually visit Florida just for the theme parks. That's a great suggestion!

OH MY GOD THIS IS THE ONLY REASON I WOULD GO TO FLORIDA (even though the Hollywood one just opened by us)
but everyone going after KeyCon together would be wayyyyyy too much fun!

I would be willing to be involved in helping organize the meet-up in SoCal, but I highly highly doubt there are enough people to do that. It sounds like Chicago and Austin are being mentioned a lot. Vegas seems reasonable as well.

I concur, though, someone said we'll run out of 2016 before we figure this out!! How do we unite our forces and make this happen?!

If I might offer a suggestion: expand the poll to include the names of the areas included in "Other" if possible. It might be useful to give people an idea of which locations are gaining traction. Or give them ideas about convenient locations they haven't thought of. Personally, I'm still for Chicago, but it'd be fair either way.

The problem is that none of the "other" locations have volunteers to organize the actual event.  :-/  Until people step up to help organize, we only really have the four options.

The airport gives ppl many options. No need to rent a car after flying in. Tons of hotels and convention centers. Awesome city and weather.

Problem with Nashville is it isn't connected to a major airport (Like Chicago, San Francisco, LA) so it makes it harder/more expensive for people traveling in from other locations. Just something to keep in mind.

KeyCon 2016 will take place in Chicago



i3oilermaker will be planning and coordinating the event just like last year.  I will let him take over from here on out, but some high level info right off the bat is that we will likely be charging a small venue fee and the timing will be Aug/Sept with a heavy push for August due to school schedules and the like.  :thumb:

Is KeyCon usually a weekend thing or longer?

Obviously the actual con was only the one day, but a few people got there as early as Thursday IIRC and were there til Monday

Yeah ill have to make a long weekend out of it or it just wouldnt be worth the drive.

Confirmed great. Highly recommend you start at Burger Antics which is in Brookfield off of Grand Ave for one of the best burgers outside of the city, it's a 15 minute walk to Galloping Ghost. After playing games for a few hours, run down to Brixies on Ogden (1.5 blocks away) for a solid beer list and repeat until GG closes at 2AM.

I'm still bummed I had to miss Keycon last year. I'm crossing my fingers this happens in August or the one weekend in September when I'm free  :thumb:

We should give a few date options for people to select attendance prospects for.  Maybe throw out every weekend in August?  Late July - early September?

That's a good idea, seeing as July is basically over I think Aug- early Sept is the best date range.

Nice, in Chicago again! I'll definitely try to make it. Just won't be able to do it this weekend (12-14) or the next (19-21), but other-wise I think I could get my work schedule changed around.

edit:
I'm thinking of doing a little more than just a slideshow with music this time. Does anyone want to be part of the Keycon 2016 video? I could include a couple really short interviews (like 20-35 seconds each, really short) if anyone is interested. Basically just talking about what keyboard you brought, how it came to be, what parts you used... etc. That way the really interesting or unique boards can get highlighted more than just a few pics. If no one is interested, that's ok. I totally understand.

Sorry for the lack of updates, I haven't been around much.

Right now I've been trying to find a space we can use for free for Sept 16-18, it hasn't really panned out so I'm looking for cheaper places.

I'm going to talk with work about the possibility to use the downtown space (and I'll be promptly laughed at if I would guess), but if it helps the Palatine parks have their rooms starting at $17/hr and going up from there, depending on what we think we need. (Looking at Falcon Park Rec Center).
Other ideas might be just to grab a library meeting room - usually they allow for free / cheap rental of the space depending on the location and whatnot. http://www.chipublib.org/faqs/whic-cpl-locations-have-meeting-rooms/

I work at the CPL- specifically at Sulzer. I'm the guy on the top floor with the HHKB  :rolleyes: If anyone here needs more information about renting out their space (a pretty great space if you ask me) let me know, I can try and help out. I think keeping the location in the city proper is best (more to do, less of a commute, etc). I would also recommend the northside in general because it's a good medium point between being in a nice area and not being too expensive like downtown usually is.

Cheers

I'm going to talk with work about the possibility to use the downtown space (and I'll be promptly laughed at if I would guess), but if it helps the Palatine parks have their rooms starting at $17/hr and going up from there, depending on what we think we need. (Looking at Falcon Park Rec Center).
Other ideas might be just to grab a library meeting room - usually they allow for free / cheap rental of the space depending on the location and whatnot. http://www.chipublib.org/faqs/whic-cpl-locations-have-meeting-rooms/

I work at the CPL- specifically at Sulzer. I'm the guy on the top floor with the HHKB  :rolleyes: If anyone here needs more information about renting out their space (a pretty great space if you ask me) let me know, I can try and help out. I think keeping the location in the city proper is best (more to do, less of a commute, etc). I would also recommend the northside in general because it's a good medium point between being in a nice area and not being too expensive like downtown usually is.

Cheers

Yeah last year we did it in Skokie which seemed to work out well enough.  It would be nice to do it downtown but the issue is cost.  My work is in the Northbrook + Merch Mart there but it's a M-F thing so the idea of weekend is hard, but second as we are a badge access facility, so two big strikes that would have to be passed through prior to it being an option. the CPL would be perfect for the specific fact that they (usually) allow for free/cheap usage of the facilities.  We are still far enough out that it should be mostly possible to go that route.

The other option would be doing what we attempted last year and try to find a computer club of some kind at one of the colleges in the loop and try to get space from them, as they get a cool event and we get free space in prime locations.

I tried to get us space at DePaul last year but never made any headway, they keep their rooms locked down.

Typically anywhere between 30 and 40 people?  I might be mis-estimating that, though.  Maybe as high as 50?  People come and go so it's hard to judge.

Spouses always welcome!  :D  There will almost certainly be a few spouses there who can converse about regular people things while we nerd out over keyboards.  For the food and other activities, everyone is usually able to enjoy themselves regardless of keyboard fandom.  ;)

For people going to keycon, would there be interest in joining a small groupbuy for flashcarts from krikzz.com to be distributed in person at the con? https://krikzz.com/store/ If we reach $800 in orders, 20% discount applied to everything and free shipping (mix and match, we don't have to order just 1 type of cart) https://krikzz.com/store/content/8-wholesale-orders

I'm based in the loop, and am going to attend if the keycon happens.

I talked to Hoff who didn't seem to know what was going on. I guess another GHer was supposed to scout a spot but at this point, I don't think it's happening for a while. Without that organizer replying here and no actual booked date, I wouldn't hold your breath. Until Hoff or the organizer replies with a booking for a venue, it's not official. As far as I know, it's not happening this weekend. And even if it was, giving people less than 5 days of notice to travel sucks. At best, it would become a Chicago meetup.

After the back and forth about when the event was happening Keycon has turned into a small meetup at my house. Everyone who said yes to the current poll was sent a PM with more info.

If we use the same venue as last year it'll be $250-$750 depending on the size room we want but based on the poll results it doesn't seem like we need a room. If a later weekend works for more people Keycon could be rescheduled but the early poll didn't show much promise for another date.

Didn't even know this occurred.  Anyways, I think the keyboard culture has become big enough to spread into regional cultures with more regular meetups, rather than the necessity of a big national meetup to garner interest.  I consider that a good thing, as enthusiasts can meet with other enthusiasts locally and regularly.

Or maybe we have become more immersed in Internet culture rather than actually interacting with real people.

You're right, local regular meetups is the better way of doing it. That being said I thing a huge national meetup would be awesome.

It would be awesome.  It would have to be planned well and far in advance.  And in a central location in the country, but not Chicago, because that has been done before and keyboardists seems a bit tired of it.  Texas, probably Dallas or Houston, because those places two have layover airports (more so Dallas), that people from the middle of the country, the coasts, and the south can easily access.

Although the amount of local enthusiants helps garner support for a national meetup, and I am not quite sure how Texas does in this area.

Florida also would be fun, because Disney World, waterparks, beaches, and weather (When there isn't a hurricane).

This years was initially planning for it looked like 40-50 like last year, but with the delay out of summer and last minute plans it shrank.  This one just takes the cake of the bad timings.  Still was a great time.

I for one would love to see another Asheville, NC meet this spring.

That's close enough for me to attend so +1

+1  Would love to make another trip out for this.  Spring or summer.  Preferably after April 15 so Wyfster can come with.  :)


(Also in favor of a large meetup in CA if that happens ;) )


Tax day!

Correctomundo, April 17th is a Monday but a holiday so tax deadline is April 18th this year.
