For unto you is given this day in the city of Troy a Penguicon Guest of Honor, which is Howard Tayler. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the GoH wrapped in Hawain Shirts, speaking at Penguicon. And suddenly there was with the convention a multitude of fans chatting up Howard, and saying, Good God, I’m glad I came to Penguicon, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

so… yeah…

I would like to officially announce that Howard Taylor has accepted the invitation to be our Webcomics Guest of Honor at Penguicon this coming April. Now, if you’ve never seen Howard speak in person, you are in for a treat! The man is engaging, creative, friendly and genuinely fun to be around. In fact, the first time I heard him speak, he was still working for Novell and was speaking about their decision to dive into the Linux market. I sat enthralled and entertained at what was essentially a marketing talk, and that, my friends, takes some doing!

Penguicon 2010 will be held April 30 – May 2 at the Troy Marriott in Troy, Michigan (but I’m guessing you knew that last bit). Full details are at the Penguicon website, but (discounted) pre-registration has begun!

That would be Howard Taylor of Schlock Mercenary fame, of course….
