ICON 25 - Remarks

So, I was at ICON the past 3 days. I took a bunch of photos of people and of the place; I went to a bunch of presentations; I did two presentation myself (with some other people); but the most interesting thing was when I went to a Q&A Session with George Takei on Saturday. (Those who don’t know who George Takei is: he’s Sulu from the Original Series of Star Trek.) There was this one guy, who asked him (Takei) if he (the guy) could have his tea cup. I found that an awesome idea. But it was too late.

The next day (Sunday = Today), I went to the second Q&A session, and asked Takei if I could get his tea cup. He said sure. :)

George Takei’s tea cup

I know I am crazy, but I don’t care. I have an autographed tea cup, and you don’t.

(More photos to follow when I get to it.)


So, Linux Users’ Group @ Stony Brook is going to host an Install Fest at ICON — a science fiction convention right here in Stony Brook. Some of ICON’s guests include George Takei (Hikaru Sulu), Kevin Sorbo (Hercules), and even bizarre individuals such as Voltaire (author of “The U.S.S. Make-Shit-Up,” etc. in addition to most of the other “music.”)

So, show up, and have some fun!
