I passed by the convention center yesterday as the PDX comic con was getting going, and I enjoy that here, the presence of a con doesn't radically change the makeup of people you see on the street, it just adjusts the numbers a bit.
"Oh, there's a group of eight goth cyborg cat girls, instead of a group of three of them. Must be a con in town."
@kevinb lol this is so true and is indeed one of the best features of PDX!
Octodon is a nice general purpose instance.
