The Mysterious Mr. Hokum

A session at ROFLCon III

Friday 4th May, 2012

5:00pm to 6:00pm (EST)

A man is found dead in his luxury home, a beloved member of his community and a friend to many. In the process of handling his estate, his entire life story begins to fall apart. What gets laid bare is a double life, a fugitive who found shelter and rode the dot-boom to an epic win.

ROFLcon history mascot Jason Scott has spent over a decade on this yarn and will weave it for you over the course of an hour. Along the way, we’ll touch on computer history, the mechanics of grifting, and the way that, in the occasional rare case, you can truly get away with it.
