Today I came across an event announcement for Anime-expo, which was:
A debate tournament. At an Anime con! :)
I considered implementing something similar myself for defcon (THE security and hacking conference).
I've just shared this with about 500 other con organizers in the scifi and Anime realms, so I think things are about to become interesting.
Finding it, I had to share, it's a grand idea!
You will be hearing more from me on this. Perhaps a plan on how to combine a British Parliamentary Debate with a fan convention is an article I need to write?
