Summertime is gaming season, with several major conventions, shows and competitions around the globe. Today marks the opening of Gen Con, one of the largest and oldest in the world. Last year, about 28,000 flocked in the Indianapolis for 4 days of gaming, competition, exhibits, and overall geek love. It's kind of an E3 for conventional gaming. (Since Gen Con has been around almost 30 years, I should probably say that E3 is a Gen Con for electronic gaming.)
Gen Con has even produced an App, Gen Con Mobile, with maps, event schedules, and Twitter/Facebook support.
