• University Funds Academic Ponycon, People Complain.

     The University of Brighton funded a one day MLP convention and now has folks complaining they shouldn't have used public funds for it.

     The convention was a very small one day affair with nine hours of talks and folks coming from as far away as Finland for the intellectual discussion. You can find the University's promo piece here. The piece states they want to better understand how MLP has affected and is affected by various part of culture.

     The public apparently feels this wasn't a valid use of time and is complaining, though the school is unrepentant and also points out they made a very small profit.
