SEGAbits staffer A.J. Rosa, the man behind the My Life With SEGA video series, will be on a number of panels at this weekend’s Intervention 2012 convention in Rockville, Maryland which is just outside Washington D.C. What is Intervention 2012?
We are here to intervene and inspire you to embrace your inner (and outer) geek! Intervention (a shortening of the words “Internet Convention”) is where you can meet, talk with, learn from, and party with the people you see online everyday. We aim to make it “One Part New Media, One Part Gaming, One Part Nerd Party”. It has a strong emphasis on Independent artists who use the internet as their main distribution method for their work.
“Internet Culture” is a broad term that loosely means “elements of culture that are developed through and on the Internet”– music, podcast, comics, art, video, etc. being enabled primarily because of the Internet itself, and a reflection of Internet’s influence on how and what then gets developed for that online audience.
The con runs from September 21st -23rd and tickets can be bought online or at the door. What will A.J. be talking about? After the break, a full list of the panels!
2PM, Fri - “Show Me The (Youtube) Money: The highs and (possible) lows of producing online video” Featuring A.J. and Anthony Zaragoza.
8PM, Fri - “Guerrilla’s in the Machine: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying About All that Technical Crap and Do What I Want” A.J.’s very own panel in which he’ll talk about My Life with SEGA, his short films and music videos, as well as working with SEGAbits.
12PM, Sat - “It’s All About the Villain” Featuring A.J. along with Michael Terracciano, Eric Kimball and Elaine Corvidae.
6PM, Sat - “The Computer is Willing, But the Spirit is Weak: How to Build the Motivation to Keep Going” Featuring A.J. with Phil Kahn, Bree Rubin and Tony DiGerolamo.
A.J. will be carrying super sexy SEGAbits business cards, so feel free to approach him and beg for one. Also, while you’re in the D.C. area, why not also hit up The Art of Video Games at the Smithsonian and make it a SEGA weekend? The Art of Video Games ends on the 30th, so might as well go before it ends!
