Yearly Kos Ticket for Sale

As I said in my previous post, I’m becoming increasingly sure dropping out of the blogosphere is a good thing (well, after I finish the posts I owe people). As such, I see no reason to attend Yearly Kos, which means I have a $100 registration for the convention that I have nothing to do with. At least I haven’t reserved a flight ticket or a hotel, which would cost me another $739.

It goes like this: if you want to attend the convention, feel free to use my ticket. It’s only $100, down from $225 currently available. I burned $50 on it yesterday at a fundraiser, but that out of my own personal stupidity, so there’s no point in inflicting that cost on anyone else.

So you can freely get a ticket from me for less than half the minimum price. But the catch is that usernames for convention registration are based on email addresses, so there’s no way for me to transfer the registration to an account you solely control. I can give you the password and promise I won’t reset it unless you ask me to, but I can only give you my word.

So a possible solution is that I’ll give you the password and you’ll pay me only once you’ve received your badge at the convention. Once you have a badge, even if I shut you out of the account it won’t matter.

Any takers?

    I highly doubt that. All I gave the previous convention was a question that exposed that Tom Vilsack didn’t know shit about education. I’d love to do that again, preferably to a more serious candidate than Vilsack, but the strongest hardball questions are those that are hardest to ask; what I asked Vilsack needed a fair amount of time of thinking on my part just to realize his answer was so singularly ignorant. Apart from that, the only role I can function in at Yearly Kos is this of a warm body, and I’m pretty sure there will be enough of those.
