As expected, Thunderf00t has a new video crowing about the
failure of the Reason Rally. But I’ve been reading the stuff put out by people who attended.
Some guy named Ed Brayton made a series of videos about it.
I’m beginning to wish I’d gone — everyone is making the point that the reason for the Reason Rally was more than just making a big mob scene, but getting together as a community for a day. That sounds like a success to me.
As for the haters, Adam Lee has a smart comment on that.
The usual sneering bigots asserted that the rally’s anti-harassment policy must have kept people away, a claim with the same plausibility as a Bible-thumper blaming gay rights for earthquakes.
