Dan Sleep attended the 2016 fest and surprised everyone, wasn't sure he would come. He must've had a good time because he said he would be back.

Unfortunately Dan got some bad news and life turned on him and he wasn't well enough to attend this year. Talked with him via email and he asked if he sent a photo would I stick it in a corner then he would feel like he was there. I said that I would make it happen. Checked with others to see if my idea to make a life size image of Dan would be something we could do and everyone thought it seemed like a good idea.

So we came up with Dan 2.0. We took Dan 2.0 all around the fest and had people take a selfie with Dan and email the photo to him so he could keep up with the fest. Some also included well wishes for his situation.

Hopefully we didn't over stimulate Dan and he enjoyed the fun. Everyone at the fest seemed to enjoy Dan 2.0 .
