We are keen to make Punctuation a convention which puts social spaces first in a way that hasn’t previously been the case in the online conventions we have attended. To do this, we are explicitly building social spaces and time blocks into the convention, with two blocks of social time after each programme block each day, plus social time on the Friday night. We also have ideas for programme which will be more interactive and silly in order to encourage people to feel comfortable in those social spaces.
We could have a roguelike scavenger hunt!John Coxon
We want to replicate the convention experience of meeting new and interesting people in the bar, and we’re keen to use any tools that will allow us to achieve that. We’ll be running tests of such technologies behind-the-scenes in the run-up to the convention, and those who register for the convention might be asked to help us with those tests (but don’t worry, there’s no obligation).
