This past weekend in Seattle was PAX 08 (along with Bumbershoot and a ton of other stuff). I don’t know how many tourists were in Seattle last weekend, but almost 59,000 of them were there for PAX. Penny Arcade is, of course, one of the biggest web comics on the web and is known for brutally honest commentary on the video game industry. This was the fifth year of their conference who’s stated goal is to make the Internet into a physical place for one weekend a year. I’ve gotta say that they definitely succeeded this year. With Fruit Fuckers walking around downtown Seattle, some of the best nerdcore rappers around, and three floors of bean bags to hang out and play Nintendo DS games (which mostly consists of drawing penises on pictochat), it’s hard to imagine what else is missing from this physical presence of the Internet.
