Registration for MaxFunCon opened to the public on Friday, and the response has been overwhelming.
We've filled 86% of the beds at Lake Arrowhead - less than two dozen remain.
Who knows what the future holds, but my honest recommendation is: if you're waiting for something, stop waiting.

The MaxFunCon podcast continues apace... this time around it's a new video from our friends in the New York sketch group Elephant Larry, who'll be performing at this year's Con. It's a full-length parody of pre-film entertainment called The Wow. You can subscribe to the podcast in iTunes to download it to your portable media player. And while you're at it, check out last week's show, an interview I conducted with Merlin Mann.
It's our host's contention that MaxFunCon.com will be back up tomorrow, but in light of its disasterous collapse the past few days, I've decided to extend the scholarship deadline to Monday.

Maybe you couldn't make it in 2009. Well, luckily enough for you, Merlin will be joining us again this year. In anticipation of next week's podcast, in which Jesse will be talking to him about his upcoming book, we're sharing the advice he gave at MaxFunCon 2009.
Merlin is great at breaking down the process of making art, or writing, or however you choose to be awesome and helping you think clearly about how you can stop stalling and just get started. So what are you waiting for? Help him help you by heading over to the MaxFunCon site to get the podcast.
