That's a shame. My impression last year was of more empty seats than previously. The good thing about the Euston Road venue was the cafe downstairs and the convenience for trains heading north. The downside - it wasn't very intimate.
Uncon's fine as it is but you have to have a general interest in forteana to take in every talk and it turns into a marathon. Maybe individual rooms for more off-beat stuff might attract. Somewhere in the Midlands or North would be good, possibly in summer with the opportunity to sit outside, chill and chat - not really a possibility in central London.
Some of the smaller comic/roleplaying/autoipgraph conventions have had success here in Georgia by converging and becoming giant affairs that bring in multiple, overlapping fanbases. Maybe UnCon could try to allign itself with some other convention that would be a good fit?
Dunno. I can't seem to remember. That was probably when I was caught up in that whole smoking crack and stealing cars business. Can't have been because I turned up the weekend before, felt silly, went home and was nable to fidn any accomodation the following weekend. Oh no, can't be that.
On the venue front I think something more central might cut costs and boost attendance. Brum or Manchester would see the best locations outside London.
Actually in all seriousness - it was just a trial of editing wikipedia for me as I've never done it before. I've just started a holiday and I might ahve a bash at editing soem entries now - as Emps as pointed out to me there are ones that need editing.
