Great con,
  I got sick on the way up there, so the first two days were pretty down until I could fight most of it off.
Art Show was great. Dealer Rooms, too, but they seemed smaller, and a few of the old regulars seemed to be missing. I did get a couple of interesting items.
  Was it me? Or did it seem not as crowded this year?
  Maybe the new arrangement was actually a help.
  I'm definitely out of touch with the current crop of actors, though. I just don't watch much TV these days. I didn't recognise but a handful of the guests.

I agree, it seemed less crowded this year. I was able to get around quickly on Saturday, which is a miracle, lol

Same here on the new tv shows; some i had at least heard of, but others i drew a blanks on. Also, any series that's not on regular broadcast tv i don't get to see until (and if) it comes out on dvd.

It definitely was less crowded on both Friday and Saturday, or so it seemed to me.

My bf and I both thought Saturday was a lot less crowded than normal.. it'll be interesting to see what numbers they come up with on attendance.

I didn't think the guest list was all that stellar, especially for a 30th year..

Totally agree on the guest list, and then several cancelled--the actors got work, not sure abt others.

They said 77k in the closing ceremony.

Some stuff seemed less crowded, but maybe they got better at managing attendee sinks. Sounds like reworking some of that was a big mid-year project for them. Also, I think some people just skipped stuff this year if it was a mess last year. I decided to not even try to do any panel in the Hyatt, even though I would have loved to have done some.

77,000 they say. I guess it was just spread out enough to thin the crowding. Better elevator policies posted, too. I'm still of the opinion that there were some familiar set-ups missing from the dealers rooms.
