Intervention con starts today!

It's at at the Hilton Washington DC/Rockville in Rockville, MD, from September 21st through September 23rd, a weekend celebration of cyber-culture, geek life, and the creative opportunities of the internet. The event's co-founder, Onezumi Hartstein, said, "[co-founder] James Harknell and I wanted to put together an event that would compliment the existing print-centric conventions – we wanted to showcase the creators who use the Internet as their primary publishing method. We felt that web creators needed their own space, We're giving them that with Intervention." After successful runs in 2010 and 2011, this year will mark Hartstein's third time organizing the event.

The convention also features panels, educational content, children's programming, board and video gaming, an extensive Artist Alley, Live Action Roleplaying, musical performances, and plenty of giveaways. As in past years, there will be a charity auction to benefit the Electronic Frontier Foundation, an international non-profit digital advocacy group that helps to defend civil liberties in the digital space.

Tickets for Intervention 2012 can be bought for the regular price of $45 afterwards at the door. More details at
