Justified West

I'm curious if it's worth it to try to make it to Justified West, aside from an opportunity to hang out with a large collection of Type nerds. I need to justify, (ha!), the expense of registration and accommodations, if only to myself.

The parts all look interesting, and all of the speakers are cool looking dudes and dudettes of Typophile, but only one of the parts directly relates to my own profession as a web designer, which is Zara's part on mobile typography.

What could I possibly say to my boss to try to get him to chip in on expenses? Is there anything I might be missing out on if I don't go?

Theoretically you could do it as a day trip - no hotel required.

And miss the film fest/after party? The film fest doesn't end until 10pm, and there is no way I want to drive from Vancouver, BC to Spokane, Wa at that time of night, especially after a long day. Perhaps if I flew? But that ups the expense again.

The line at the border will be short ;-)

Oh crap, thanks for the reminder. We need passports now!
