UPDATE: several twitter users reported that ComicCon’s new hotel booking service, TravelPlanners, crashed under the load two minutes into the rush. It’s back up again, but EXTREMELY slow from all accounts.

    It’s too bad the city wasn’t more supportive of this event. It really makes downtown happening.

    Strange, this showed up in my Google reader on Saturday morning.

    Travel planners’ new system is very slow, but it works. I got a room at the Mariott next to the Convention Center
