In a few hours, I’ll be across the river at the Savannah Convention Center for SCAD’s annual Job/Career Fair, which has been hurriedly combined this year with the Sequential Department’s annual Editor’s Day in preparation for next year, when the entire event is supposed to turn into SCADCon, a three-day, full-fledged convention.
