Eyes on St. Bride
I went ahead and got a ticket for the conference. I still don’t have the cash to travel, but I figured it’s better to have the ticket in hand and be safe. I’d hate to raise enough money and then discover it’s sold. Worst case, I’m out about $73 which isn’t the end of the world. Anybody wishing to contribute to my travel fund, please feel free: the link’s right over there on the right. Even small donations help. A dollar helps. I will return with wondrous photos and amazing stories. I really want to make this happen.
There’s an ever-so-slight chance that Josh will come along as well. He’s been thinking about getting back on the conference circuit (we’re thinking about TypeCon ’09 this summer in Atlanta, GA and maybe even the AtypI conference in Mexico City). If the studio continues to do well, then many things will be possible.
In theory, I have enough money in the bank to book plane tickets right now. However, this wouldn’t leave me with enough to pay rent past April. I don’t want to do anything rash that might jeopardize my living and eating situation. That’s been under enough stress these past few months.
On the agenda for this week: writing some of the documentation, getting the ball rolling with Bixler Foundry, laying the foundations for final presentations, and hopefully one very exciting interview.
