The 1st Hobart Brick Expo was a LEGO display in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia organised by the TAZ-Brick Collectors Club.
Below are some photos of the event taken by Jawa Pro.
On the Saturday there was 500 visitors, on the Sunday there was 1000!
Check out some time-lapse footage of the event. (1 picture per minute.)
Sure enough, shortly after it made the local newspaper!

The LEGO Stack Exchange proposal is over halfway to beta!
To get it the rest of the way, we need more people to commit to using the site.
If you know anyone who might be interested, send them this link:
Committing is the only way to get access to the private beta, and every committer moves the proposal one step closer to launching.
Hurry! Once the private beta begins, new sign-ups will be closed until the site goes public.

I’ve found an awesome LEGO stop-motion animation on YouTube - The Manipulator.
I thought I’d post it here so you can watch it too!

How do you say it? When you refer to everyone’s favorite plastic brick building blocks in the plural form, do you say “LEGO” or “LEGOs?” LEGO is the correct term (just ask any true AFOL). It’s a Danish word that comes from the two words “Le” (Play) and “Godt” (Well). Furthermore, it is not pronounced La-go or Li-go, and should be written in block capitals. If you want to be formal, you can even add an (R) symbol to the end of it.
Actually, LEGO, the noun, should only be used to refer to the company that makes the product. Otherwise it should be used as an adjective like ‘LEGO bricks’ or ‘LEGO elements’.
