  1. 65,000 feels low for how big it was, I would have assumed 100,000 were there.

  2. I also heared that Silicon Valley Comic con volunteers were turned into paid volunteers at the last minute, is this true?

  3. I thought 65k for this year sounded about right; this year’s SVCC covered a much bigger area but was a lot less crowded than last year (where the estimated attendance was 60k.)

    Yes, the Volunteers/Woz Squad switched to a paid model at the last minute, but before they began working.

  4. its True. I didnt volunteer but Woz himself even mentioned it at the con. Not sure hiw last minute it was by my memory. Might have been a couple weeks in advanced.
