SVCC is usually late on updating. It was either last year or the year before, their website had the prior year's stuff for months after the event.

I've been wondering this too... they still have last year's dates on their sites. No announcements, no nothing. I'm wondering if the're going through a change in management behind the scenes.

After last years SVCC, someone posted, I think You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login, that a vendor said they were told by SVCC that there was new management and they were going to be re-branding.
Maybe that's the delay.

SVCC is now SiliCon, and Adam Savage is taking over as creative director.

Silicon? Did Gavin Belson come up with the new name?

Overall, I'm 50/50 about the new name, also curious about the con’s future.

Ugh... that name is ripe for insults... but I could live with it. Is Woz no longer involved?

Say's he's still involved, but not much in the way of details.

The name could probably be better, but I care more about what they do with the con itself. Especially after how it went last year...Adam Savage has his work cut out for him.

Also, from the rebranded website at You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login:

"And fear not Woz fans! Woz is still a part of the show and will continue to contribute his energy and expertise to the event, just in a more behind the scenes capacity."

Adam Savage's name is now on the logo, so it looks like he will have significant creative control.

I’m waiting until the schedule gets released to see if it’s worth getting tickets.

I'm also waiting for the schedule. I was disappointed last year so I want to see what direction it's going before I commit.

I’ll probably still go since the con is only 10min away from where I live, but I was also rather disappointed with last year’s offering. Instead of growing, it seemed to have shrunk in scale. Now I don’t want it to be as big as SDCC or anything, but I feel like the Bay Area could use a con as big as Wondercon.
