Links & a hashtag suggestion & notes re internet access (updated as I gather info)

Please do add anything you think I'm missing in comments and I'll update this post when I get a chance.

Useful Minicon 51 Links

List of Minicons Past, Present, and Future
- a future Minicon: Minicon 52

Twitter & Hashtags (Is this still under Joel P's control or is someone else running it? Anyone going to be updating it this weekend?) (Is possible nowadays to set up Twitter accounts so multiple people can update them, FWIW.) (I've got the reins for now for @mnstf FWIW.)

I would humbly suggest "#Minicon51" as the hashtag for Twitter and elsewhere even though it's not as short as one might like. #M51 is likely too generic and might already be taken by something else and #Minicon also brings up other cons as well as toys and such.
- Search Twitter for #Minicon51


Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Bloomington - Minneapolis South (a.k.a. the RadiShTree)
- Hilton Honors Site (note: you can earn points & get some perks if you're a member; easy to sign up if you aren't already and plan to stay at the con hotel)

Internet Access

IIRC you can get internet access easily enough if you have a hotel room for free or an extra charge. Is free if you're a Hilton Honors member, also in previous years basic service was free with static IPs & other stuff costing $10 or so. I can update this once I'm at the hotel on Friday, but if someone has details before then let me know.

Anyone know the situation for access for people without hotel rooms?
