If there were no pandemic and I was planning to go to XOXO this year, I wonder if I would have cancelled anyway out of fear of going to Portland right now
@danbruno if you are not in a 3 square block radius in downtown, you would literally not know anything was happening (though I would also be afraid for the physical security of the actual xoxo site, since right wing people have seized on it as a thing to protest before)
@darius Weirdly, this came up again in person today—I had a masked-at-six-feet conversation with a Portlander who saw my Powell's shirt while I was out in Cambridge
