Your Online Life, In-Person
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.
One Part New Media
One Part Gaming
One Part Nerd Party
Intervention (a combination of the words “Internet” and “Convention”) is a creator-focused Internet Culture Convention started in 2010.
On Today’s show I spend an hour talking to Webcomic Diva Onezumi Hartstein and her husband/producer James Harknell. We talk about highlights from Intervention 2010 and what’s in store for 2011. Enjoy the podcast!
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.

Do you read webcomics? Do you write fanfic? Are you a gamer? Do you put things on YouTube or hang out in an online secret club for Furry Pirates? Do you think that Tom Baker was the best Doctor? This is the place for you.
Do you draw a webcomic, keep a blog, make a podcast, design websites, or market your stuff via social media? Are you an independent performer or do you make some great art or crafts that you sell online? This is the place for you.
Intervention will have both fun programming for fans and educational programming for creators.
There will be dance parties, art jams, and other special events in addition to a massive 75 table Artist’s Alley/Vendor Room.
If you are a part of the scene and you use the internet to do something really cool, this is the place for you. Intervention cares about what you have to say, and they want to hear from you so that they can make this con the best convention on the planet.
