As a native yinzer (yinz = y'all / yinzer = pittsburgher), I'm obligated to be a good neighbor.

Whoa!  What the??  I had no idea about any of that, that's really neat.  TIL.  :)

I'm definitely in for Pittsburgh. Is there a carpool thread that usually gets started for these?

I'm in the Maryland/DC/Baltimore area, and I'm down for driving a carpool if we can get a group of people together.

We've had successful carpools happen for previous events. I'd suggest showing some interest in here as things progress to see if anybody would be interested in joining. There are plenty of people from that area, so I bet you can harangue some into a road trip!

Agreed! Just thinking for a successful separate topic to occasionally check in with the main thread to keep newcomers aware of it. :)

This is so true! ;) Awhile back I had a traveling job & people were always asking me where I was from because of my accent, my Pittsburghese isn't even that heavy too! The funniest is when I was down south & asked someone for a pop or milkshake, they had no ideal what I was talking about! :))

Honestly, the week of is fine. But the sooner the better so we have an idea if we're approaching the max attendance at the venue. I'm pretty confident we'll be more than fine though.

Making this keycon a whole weekend trip with me and my sisters! They can know more about the hobby I've spent so much money and time on for the last 3-4 years! RSVP'ed just now! Definitely will try to see about staying at the Ace Hotel as well but may have to go the airbnb route or something depending on how much it ends up costing. I'm sure it'll work out lol

Just a quick update, since most people are watching this thread. The guest list is current sitting at 182 attendees.

Also, we're working on sorting out some events and speakers, and also more sponsorships and giveaway items.  If you have anything to add on either subject, check out those threads.

Shaping up to be a good ol' time.

I don't disagree, but... Does the view counter go up each time someone visits, or are those UNIQUE visits?

It'd only take a little under 100 people to check the thread after every new reply (like I do) to get to that view count ;)

I'm still super stoked.

Meetup streams are definitely fun and I'd love to see it - we had one at KeyCon 2013 in San Jose.  There was a head-cam GoPro that walked around the venue showing everything off too.  :D  So if anyone has one of those and wants to do some streamin'...  ;)
