Intervention is a yearly Internet Culture convention held in September in Rockville Maryland at the Hilton Rockville/Washington D.C. hotel.
Intervention (a combination of the words “Internet” and “Convention”)highlights independent artists from all spectrums of creative output (Comics, Music, Podcasts, Video, Blogging, Stories, etc.) who use the Internet as their primary distribution method. The convention hosts panels, workshops, movie showings, music concerts, open gaming, and dance events.
How much of your day do you spend on the internet–looking at comics, watching videos, reading blogs, connecting with friends, tweeting, or just surfing? At Intervention you can meet, talk with, learn from, and party with the people you see online everyday.

The goal of Intervention is to bring together different independent creators and fans to party, educate, and appreciate the opportunities the Internet gives to all of us. It is similar to the Sci-Fi/Anime/Other fandom cons, but here the emphasis is on people who use the internet as the primary way to distribute their work and communicate with their friends.
