bloxconNYBLOXcon New York City is winding down as I write, but Alan and I spent a healthy portion of the day running around and documenting it via photographs and video as best as we could. After all, only 1,000 lucky ROBLOXians could actually attend the event in person, and we want the whole community to know what it was like to be here, on a boat, filled with fighter jets (seriously, the event was at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum), for BLOXcon NYC. Check out the following image gallery for a taste.
