Several current and former Piggies have worked BayCon and other
Science Fiction cons as staff. I Heather Stern, Deirdre Moen at least.
We can talk to the rest of those folks, too. I'll let them know we are
thinking about this. I have worked hotel, and helped out in the
"family-friendly" room with Kymbr Mundstock. We may be able to get her
to help bring in children with XOs, and have them all primed on Pippy.
Charles Merriam's XO hacking society is full of parents of young
children. Some of us are organizing to tackle the schools and
children's museums. Heather has run computer rooms. Deirdre and her
husband Rick have worked in Con programming and other areas.

In other words, yes.

Would Google like to be a sponsor?
