|Construction continues on the convention center.|
The Indianapolis Convention Center construction seems to be proceeding on schedule. It's been very hot in Indy these past few months, and some construction projects were delayed a bit due to the heat. It looks like they're fairly close to moving to completely indoor construction on the convention center though, so it's certainly on track for being complete for Gen Con next year.
|The new J. W. Marriott hotel|
This hotel will be a two gerbil tube hop from the convention center just like the Hyatt is, but on the opposite end. There's a whole "Marriott Compound" sitting behind it, and it looks like they'll all be joined.
The west side of this hotel looks down on White River State Park. This would be a great location to have w00tstock come during Gen Con. As we get closer, it would be great if everyone hopped over to the w00tstock page, and followed the links to "demand" an Indianapolis w00tstock. I think this link will get you there. Sure, the orchestral video game music concert was nice this past year, but w00tstock during Gen Con would be epic.
