You know you're living in the future when somebody builds a web application to help you find the science fiction conventions nearest to your zip code. Over at BoingBoing, Cory Doctorow points us to the just-born "Convention Finder," a creation of SpaceWesterns editor Nathan Lilly. Now it's up to us to help make Convention Finder a success by adding every convention you know about to the database. Says Lilly: "Spread the word to your various fan groups and/or, if you know of a convention that's coming up in your area that would be of interest to geeks in general, please feel free to submit it yourself to the convention finder (just make sure that you have the venue's zip code)."
