Any time I see Techno-Twaddle in a post title I just have to read more. Here is a passionate alternate view of all the goodness that is NECC. Tabor explains why he isn't drawn to NECC and what parts he finds objectionable: "the sheer lack of intellectual diversity [a statement which will undoubtedly be criticized as inaccurate], the techno-fandom, the 100% Process/0% Content split will keep me away. If I wanted to sit on the floor with a notebook, I'd go to a Halo 3 LAN party." You don't want to miss the comments. Suffice it to say that the NECC attendees had plenty to say and Tabor responds to them all. -BD
