Great news!

How will I be able to resist the extra FnordCon T-shirt.

Between that, the con, the upcoming Pocket Box Kickstarter, and maybe Car Wars this year; I'm going to start pinching pennies.

Sadly, I'm going to have to give this a skip. I need to visit my gal in LA this summer, and between all y'all and her...sorry. :D

No problem, ColBosch! We're expecting this first one to lean heavily on Austinites for our attendees, but we'll do our best to keep tempting you in future years!

Any hope to get a small listing of hotels nearby the location of the con?

Not likely I can attend but in the off chance... would be helpful for those not familiar with the area.

Also, will the swag include con-exclusive stuff or will everything be available through other means? The silipint looks cool but those are pick-up only.

This link should take you to a Google Map showing hotels nearby. We're pretty close to the airport, so there are a number of options within a very short drive.

By far the cheapest, closest option is a Super 8 on Montopolis Drive. If you want something a little nicer, there are options for that as well, not too much farther from the venue.

I really wish I could get out there to attend this. Sigh. Have fun those who are going.

Why am I looking at the hotel listings? It's gonna cost me at least $1000 (and 8 or 9+ hours of flying) to fly there...

Because it just wouldn't be a Con without our favorite Icelander. :-)
