If you can make it to the Bay Area at the end of this month, consider going to Arse Elektronika. It looks to be quite an interesting gathering of folks. Not just a bunch of wanking guys showing off their side projects or sex doll and Fleshlight makers.
It looks like the schedule could still stand to be, well fleshed out some. But they're getting there.
September 29th to October 2nd. You can get your tickets here.
