Convention, Continued

(Welcome to Gaping Void readers. There are two or three more manifestos that will be uploaded to the Parenting Manifesto Project tomorrow, and I welcome yours.)

I think we're finally out of the convention season -- the 2006 At-Home Dad Convention is now two months in the past, but the best piece on the gathering was just published. John Perry from the Telegraph (UK) showed up this year and penned a a thoughtful piece on the convention goings-on, his own experience, and some outlook on the at-home dad landscape here and in the UK.

The coverage gave a lot of color and captured the environment well. If you haven't been to one, it's hard to describe the variety of guys -- the former professionals, the Hell's Angels lookalikes (really, though, the Daves are nice guys), the vacuum-obsessed -- or the depth of everyone's experience. Nice to see Perry capture it so well.

It's probably never too early to start thinking about the 2007 conference. Check out the convention's forums, particularly the one on '07 suggestions. And I hope to see you there.
