Contains nuts. Takes may be hot.
I found myself at the Norfolk Showground, last weekend, for OLL22. The first videogame convention setup by @firstname.lastname@example.org
You never know what to expect at these things. For me, it was an opportunity to meet online friends for the first time, grab a curry, and spend a couple of nights talking Amiga, Demoscene and random garage at the bar.
But the event was great!
Some really interesting stalls, lots of hardware -- the vast majority of which was available to play on -- and most importantly, there was room to move. It wasn't over subscribed, which felt just about right, if you're covid conscious like me.
I didn't catch many of the panels, but from what I saw it was the usual mix of streamers and podcasters... again, what you'd expect. But a big shout out to the Norwich Amiga Group, who not only had a cracking stand, but looked after us all weekend.
OLL22 did a lot of things right -- impressively so for a first show -- and I'd definitely go again next year. The crowd was super interesting, and the stalls had my wallet twitching throughout.
Definitely one to put on your radar! I met Good People.
