I thought it was interesting. I wouldnt be taking part as I'm married, but I can certainly empathize with those folks who aren't comfortable just opening up point blank to strangers, especially if they're attractive members of the opposite sex in a speed dating setting. You may be just starting to find some type of common ground to talk about and it would be time to move on to someone new.Having said that...I think it would be a neat promotional bit if the Pittsburgh Con is represented on the show in the future.From: "bsimon9427@..." <bsimon9427@...>

It's never been done in the past, but we are currently talking with the producers of the show about coming to Pittsburgh, in the mean time we are trying to figure out if we would have enough people willing to participate. So just informally if there are any Single Guys or Gals that would be interested, give a yell!! You're not committing to anything I'm just trying to get a feel for whether we should pursue it or not!
For those of you that don't know what Bsimon and I are talking about, it's a SCI-FI SPEED DATING SHOW on TLC called GEEK LOVE.
