MangoCon 2019 Venue Announcement
We're excited to announce that MangoCon 2019 will be held at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Las Colinas! This brand new venue is located in the Toyota Music Factory complex and is surrounded by restaurants and bars with plenty of hotels nearby. It's close to both DFW and Love Field airports, so no matter from where you're flying, it will be easy to get to.
@JaredBusch brought to our attention that it's so new that the GoogleMaps satellite view still shows it as a pile of dirt! So we will be heading down there to confirm the existence of sidewalks between the Alamo Drafthouse and the closest hotels. Please stay tuned for a list of hotels and other attractions in the area, and MangoCon welcomes you to Dallas!
RE: If you are new drop in say hello and introduce yourself please!
I'm Dominica and I'm awesome. That's all you need to know.
Cognitive biases cause bad decisions.
I saw at least one example in here that @scottalanmiller has written about in articles about decision-making. This is a good read, especially if you are someone that is unaware of how marketing affects your daily decisions.
Historic shopping mall converts to micro apartments
This is fantastic. The video is a little long, but worth the watch.
RE: Flights to Rochester for MangoCon 2016
Hey everybody! I'm a little late to the party, but here to help and give advice on travel stuff, if you need it.
Tip #1: Check Farecompare.com to see good options out of your local airports, keeping in mind that you may have to do a few searches to check prices to Syracuse, Buffalo, and Rochester. Talk to me if you're having any trouble with it, I use it ALL THE TIME.
#2. Search the Jetblue and Southwest websites directly.
#3. Learn to pack carry-on only. You will be so very happy that you did! You can easily pack for a conference in a carry-on bag, especially a casual one like MangoCon.

RE: Extrovert Stuff
Haven't read the list yet, but that is definitely partly why Scott was so panicked, and partly how he ended up in the garage in the first place - he met a new friend and followed her in to help her! Doesn't matter that she was a stranger he doesn't even remember now, he was alone, and then someone talked to him! Yay! A friend! Extroverts are so WEIRD!

I kinda want one of these...
RE: Gaming - What's everyone playing / hosting / looking to play
We played Overcooked as a family last night. @scottalanmiller is a very angry time management game player, lol.
RE: SAM at the First Party
I'm one of the introverts that had a fun time at the 80s party. Was it too loud? Yup, but I just saw it as a show, I danced my ass off with friends to music I love, and then I gathered as many people as I could and brought them to Touche's for the unofficial after-party.
I think we need a mascot...
I'm picturing an anamorphic mango that can either be kawaii (super cute) or an angry little monster, depending on the situation. Man, I wish I could draw. I want a mangolassi.it t-shirt, so I've been brainstorming ideas, which resulted in thinking up a mascot. Does anyone else have ideas?
