Interesting. I wouldn't mind going depending on where it is. Since my wife and I are planning a trip to Florida later this year (and we've already had some expenses come up this year that we weren't counting on... with more possibly on the way), I don't think I would be able to pull off flying somewhere and paying for a hotel. If it's somewhere within driving distance of the Chicago area, I might make it.
Even if I don't make it this year, this is cool, and if it becomes an annual thing, I would definately love to go to it at some point.
Just a question, though. Is the name "Power-Con" set in stone? It's not a bad name (and is obviously in reference the the phrase "I have the power"), but it's almost sounds a little too much like "Power-Morphicon", which is the Power Rangers convention.
It would be nice if the name stood out a little more and didn't sound too much like the name of another con. But, it's not a big deal.
