This big story about Otakon this year is going to be the significant attendance dip... which is to say it was only SORT OF bigger than all the other cons in the area, rather than WAAAAY bigger. Considering what the crowd congestion is usually like at Otakon these days, it's really hard for me to convince myself that this is a bad thing. What's more, it doesn't seem like panel attendance was any lower than previous years, so I have to ask: if a convention attracts fewer people who just hang out in the hall and don't participate in anything, what exactly has been lost?

(Yes, yes, I know the answer is admission money. But look at it this way: smaller crowds mean fewer brats in the halls wrecking things, which means fewer expenses to cover, which theoretically means fewer badges to sell before you break even! Thank you, this has been "Guy Who Doesn't Actually Know Anything About the Harsh Realities of Convention Finances Theater")
