Patrick Delahanty is perhaps best known as the creator of FanCons.com, the largest source for fan convention listings on the Internet. He is also a producer and host for the AnimeCons TV podcast. Prior to this, Patrick was the founder and host of The Chibi Project, where, for over 15 years, he was responsible for conducting horrible experiments on anime toys for no good reason.
Patrick is big fan of conventions. He has attended nearly 200 of them and is one of the founders of both Anime Boston and Providence Anime Conference. He has hosted his popular improv event, Anime Unscripted, more than 40 times at over a dozen different conventions in two countries and in five time zones.
Patrick's work career started in 1995 as a "Websmith" for The Internet Company in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the original owner of the internet.com domain. He later moved on to work at The Monster Board, About.com, do some consulting, and then return back to Monster.com.
In 2013, Patrick moved from Boston, Massachusetts to Petaluma, California to be the Web Engineer at TWiT. He is responsible for keeping all the web-based operations running smoothly including the behind-the-scenes encoding system. He holds a degree in Computer Science from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and regularly codes in PHP and Perl. You can see him interviewed in episode 42 of Coding 101.
