15 SEPTEMBER 2014
I know this isn't the most welcome news, but here it is: ECCC 3-day passes are more than 2/3 sold out. The Celebrity Fast Pass has sold out completely (as the Deluxe Pass has been since the third minute of the sale.) Single days are still ripe for the picking.
There has been some ire around the fact that the badges are selling so quickly (they've been on sale for 2 weeks - last year they took until January to sell out) and that they are only available online. I kind of get it. And I do feel bad for people who are watching their comfortable local Con grow like a radioactive monster.
But mostly I feel bad for future us, because this is how it all starts. Last year it sold out in months, this year it's selling out in weeks. Next year it'll sell out even faster and the year or so after that we'll be yelling at our computers in an online sale that seems impossibly fast.
