No! It is terrifying! 
These amazing videos from RISD professor Dennis Hlynsky, take actual footage of starlings, vultures and pigeons and turn them into time-lapse videos so you can see the flight paths of each bird. The result is super beautiful and NOT digitally animated.

I guess I could understand that someone might have suggested this as a way to give more people a chance at experiencing the convention.... but.... Where this is great for local people it is highly discouraging to travelers.  Knowing how quickly tickets sell out online I would be really concerned about being able to get all 4 or 5 tickets I need.

This is the video I was talking about at Old Chicago.  She reads off the facebook post from the comic artist so you'll get to hear that in its entirety.  

So yeah, I'm torn.  I think she certainly brings up points that really hit home with me.  I feel really lucky to have literally grown up in the geek world, and more specifically the convention going part of the geek world.  I literally watched the gender demographics change. 

I also would like to assume the man was drunk when he wrote that post.  Which is a shame because I think he brings up a really good point, but it gets lost in his horribleness.  His point that gets lost is that geek on geek hate is bad.  More specifically that geeks who think they are still "better than", "above", or "more cool" than the others around them are extremely caustic to the community.  Not every scantily clad woman at a convention has this mentality, but there are some.  Spend time in the women's restrooms and eventually you will observe scantily clad friends complaining about how gross, pathetic, and over all beneath them the males attending the convention are.  

So I would argue that such women if they would like to self identify as geeks I will welcome them with open arms.  I would like to think I can raise above women on women hate (which is a much larger issue than the rising trend of geek on geek hate).  But if these women hold onto the idea that because they only dip their toes in one area of geekdom that they retain their "betterness", then yes I say she is not a geek.  Albinwonderland's point goes two ways.  Who am I to say she (refering to our scantly clad cosplayer) isn't a geek because is isn't into as much stuff as I am, but who is she to judge those around her because they are into more stuff than her.

Just because this is my opinion, it doesn't mean I assume the worst of every female cosplayer I meet.  I should always assume the best intentions.  Also if you do come across one of those caustic cosplayers, meeting them with hostility wont help the situation.  They should still be treated with kindness and have their geek on geek hate politely pointed out to them.   So next time you are walking a con floor with me and I sigh and roll my eyes at the poison eye posing for a picture in the least possible poison ivy like pose, you should smack me.

Is this real?
Ok, this is absolutely amazing.   I doubt they will have this in Oregon, but wow, I can't believe this is real.  - I wonder how many teenage kids will be trying to knock these things out of the air....

Yeah, it's a commercial... so you can turn it off at about 1:40.
