**UPDATE** Are you trying to track your CR-48 shipment? I’m trying to help here! In that post, there’s a section on getting more info on your potential ChromeOS netbook! Good luck to you! 😀

Back to con operations. As we fly toward our next event, it’s time to get back into the heavy work of planning a full-fledged, multi-thousand person convention. MTAC Goes to 11 will be the eleventh running of Middle Tennessee Anime Convention, and it will be my first year on legitimate staff for this particular event. I’ve volunteered for a few years now, and I’ve been on staff for Geek Media Expo (MTAC Organization’s other onset) in the past. For those of you who have never given fandom conventions the time of day, you’re really limiting yourself. I’ll write more about conventions and their glory later on, but those will be for other days. For now, just know that conventions are about seventeen thousand times better than you’d expect them to be and meetings to gear up for them are a sign of great things to come!

Slightly MTAC-related, I put in my application for a CR-48 beta with Google! For those that aren’t aware, CR-48 is a beta for a ChromeOS netbook that Google is busy accepting applicants for and seeding devices out to. On top of my natural Google-geek fascination with the ChromeOS netbook idea, these would be crazy helpful for the convention! In particular, I can’t imagine the difference a fleet of ChromeOS netbooks would make for con PR trips! So, needless to say, I’m excited to hear back about that program. Here’s hoping MTAC gets a few test devices!

Are you using Chrome as your primary browser? Have you discovered the Chrome Web Store for web-applications? If you have the opportunity, give Sketchout a try! Very good demonstration of the potential that full web-app clients have. Let me know what you think! Have a good Saturday, everyone!
