When Otakon was first founded it was with a group of friends who met on a normal basis and had interaction about non Otakon things. They were actual friends
Now, Otakon is no longer composed primarily of Friends, instead it is primarily made up of work friends. If I stopped interacting with Otakon, Do you think you'd still interact with me? I don't think it's possible to answer that until either you, the reader of this post if you are otastaff, or I leave Otakon.
Not that I'm going to soon or anything, but this chain of thought has been annoying me recently.
