Conventions Attended from 1996

This is by no means a complete list of my/our convention appearances.  I threw away a big handful of con badges sometime in the early 90s, in a Fit of Despond™.  As advertised, these date from 1996.  I’ll get them linked up eventually.

Or not.

Things you need to know about this list:  Steve attended more conventions than I did during this time period, because I had a day-job and they wanted me to actually come to work (what’s with that, exactly?).  The reason this list is here is because I have taken down a Reference Work in my office, which was a wide ribbon stretched along the walls of my office, just below the ceiling line.  On that ribbon were all the badges from the conventions I/we had attended since 1996.  Since the line of ribbons was, indeed, a Reference Work, which was consulted fairly frequently, I wanted to preserve the information, even if I couldn’t preserve the original work.
