Beginning of Penguicon Badge

Penguicon is on the verge of beginning. This is what my badge and ribbon looks like now. I don't expect to get many more ribbons but I got the most important one. These are given out to everyone as they claim their badge.

Let me explain this ribbon (the black one with letters). The letters were originally FSCKHR LG MP. The concept is to blacken out the letters you're not interested in.

Friends
Sex
Chatting
Kissing
Hugging
Relationships

Ladies
Guys

Monogamous
Polyamorous

To sit near the front or back, that is the question

In the past I've seen a lot of people sit toward the back of the room of a panel. I make a point of sitting near the front so it doesn't feel like everyone is scared of the presenter.

 

It gets lonely when it looks and feels like you're one of maybe 5 people in the room, yet looking back shows another dozen or two people.

 

It's even more distancing when people start a conversation two rows back and you'd have to talk over/through people or shout across the room to join.
