What the Heck is This #OCON Thing?

I’m going to be tweeting a bunch about something with the hashtag #OCON, and I know a lot of people are going to ask me what it is.  #OCON stands for Objectivist Summer Conference, and this year’s event is taking place at Red Rock Resort & Casino, about 30 minutes off of the Las Vegas strip.

One of my less public, but very personally significant, interests is philosophy — and I’m particularly interested in the philosophy Objectivism, which was created by the late Ayn Rand.  You might remember her, she wrote the novels The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged, which are required reading in a lot schools.

I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the conference, the ideas discussed there, and other goodness tomorrow through July 10th.  I hope you’ll find some of it interesting, and I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Be Sociable, Share!
