record-breaking coverage report of
Fanime Con 2001!

Welcome to another grand special edition of Linus Lam Network News!  This news report covers our trip to Fanime Con 2001 in Santa Clara, California for three days through March 30th - April 1st, 2001.  Held in the posh Silicon Valley Westin Hotel and Santa Clara Convention Center, Fanime Con 2001 reaped three times the amount of stuff to see and do compared to Fanime Con 2000!  Definitely a new benchmark!  Money for a full membership well spent and then some!  In this exclusive review, we'll show you our massive photo journal of the major events, people, and things to see with plenty of commentary.   Our best and biggest Fanime Con convention report yet!  Coverage you can count on, here at Linus Lam Network News!

Note about photos: the camera used at Fanime Con 2001 was a new digital SLR that was not field tested enough, so many of the events, panels, and cosplay shots came out badly enough that we had to pull them from the report.  Sorry about that!  We've already purchased a new camera that has the tried-and-true characteristics of past reports, so we assure you we will always give you our best quality photos!
Note about the photo below: if there was ever a single photo to sum up the entire anime convention experience, it would have to be this one.  Going to anime conventions is all about cosplay, cameras, interviews, fans wearing anime shirts, and highly esteemed Guests of Honor.  This unique shot shows online buddy FansView photographer/reporter Kevin Lillard wearing cute cosplay kitty ears while taking photos and notes during a panel featuring anime enthusiast pioneers Fred Patten and Gilles Poitras.
