When I was your age...

Fandom elders share their memories of cons, zines, and the fandom scene before the Internet Age.

(NB: This is really just the seed of an idea. My original idea was to have something on the history of fandom, but I'm not sure if that should be a panel, or something more like a lecture. Thoughts?)

At anime cons I do a 'Get off my Lawn' panel, and they are always a hit.

Hi, all,

As an older fan who nonetheless came into the whole fandom thing comparatively recently, I really like this idea, but could Gecko please elaborate on the "Get Off My Lawn" panel, just so I (at least) have a better idea of the full panel concept?

Thanks,

Danny

Basically it was a discussion of what being a fan of anime was like before there were anime conventions.
