Otakon Coverage

I spent most of the weekend tracking down Otakon coverage from the organizations that were registered as press at the convention.

Here's what I found so far. I still have about 40 organizations to check, and some of the ones listed below are planning further coverage.

Thanks to all those press organizations who made it easier by sending me direct links!
