  1. There is a proposal to bring Japanese high speed rail technology (SCMAGLEV, researched and developed by JR Central) over to the U.S., specifically the NorthEast Corridor. Here's the site for The Northeast MAGLEV, a private U.S.-based organization that is pushing to bring SCMAGLEV over to the U.S.: http://northeastmaglev.com/ Currently, there's two phases for this SCMAGLEV line, phase 1 is constructing an SCMAGLEV line between Washington D.C. to Baltimore with a station at BWI Airport, phase 2 is extending the SCMAGLEV line to New York City, a potential third phase has been reported and that would extend SCMAGLEV from NYC to Boston. Phase 1 is currently undergoing an environmental impact study: http://bwmaglev.info/ According to this February 2018 presentation: http://northeastmaglev.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/TNEM-Presentation-February-2018.pdf page 6 has the map with the proposed stations, D.C, BWI Airport, Baltimore, Wilmington, Delaware, PHL Airport, EWR Airport, NYC then it says "Future Service to Boston" page 7 states that there's been 8+ years of privately funded work to bring SCMAGLEV to the U.S. and that Japan has actually offered to fund $5 billion+ and there is a technology transfer agreement in place to bring SCMAGLEV from Japan to the U.S. Page 8 lists a 15 minute estimated ride between Baltimore and D.C. Page 10 states that the projected year for construction for the D.C.-Baltimore section is "late 2020."
  2. Here's a link to their guest list: https://www.universalfancon.com/special-guests-2/
  3. There's a new fandom con launching in Baltimore in April. This con will be a 3 day con that runs non-stop from Friday to Sunday at the Baltimore Convention Center. Despite this con being a first year con, this con has a large guest list: https://blog.universalfancon.com/fanconpressrelease020118/ This con is attempting to be a very diverse and inclusive con according to their press release. Does this sound like an interesting con to anyone on here and is anyone plans to attend this con?
  4. Well, I found the Events DC Otakon 2018 event listing where they state that Otakon "is the biggest ... celebration of Japanese animation, manga, J-pop, and east Asian culture in the world" also lists wrong dates, Thursday, August 9th to Saturday, August 11th: http://www.dcconvention.com/Events/OTAKON_2018_Otakon_Annual_Convention.aspx

Anything Extra: -I'm trying this out because I want to try to make new friends who I can keep in touch with before con and possibly meet up at con. -I have a disability that affects my social skills so I'm a pretty awkward when it comes to social things such as making friends in real life, it's much easier becoming friends with people online first then meeting them in real life rather the usual way of meeting people in real life becoming friends with them then becoming online friends with them. The disability if anyone is interested in researching it is Asperger's Syndrome, part of the Autism Spectrum Disorders. -I hope people would be willing to become friends with me despite my disability.
