Civil War LAN
My mom is pretty much the coolest.
Through University of Oregon cultural forum, she's been throwing large all-night LAN parties in their Student Union for a few years now with great success, but this year it's going to a new, historic level. They've coordinated with their counterparts at Oregon State up in Corvallis to do the first-ever organized intercollegiate gaming competition: Civil War LAN. It's pulled off using their ultra-high-speed Internet2 connection, and could be an indicator of future intercollegiate competitions.
