Greg Daniels Talks To The Scranton Times-Tribune
Tying in with yesterday's Emmy coverage, the Scranton Times-Tribune posted an interview with Greg Daniels which talks about his plans for the convention in October as well as some spoilers for season four.

From the article:

"Mr. Daniels, executive producer of the Scranton-set NBC sitcom "The Office," which will vie for its second consecutive Outstanding Comedy Emmy tonight, told The Times-Tribune in a recent interview that he's currently trying to get the network to pay for him and the show's other writers to come to Scranton for the first "The Office" Convention, set for the weekend of Oct. 26-28.

Mr. Daniels has been privy to the convention's plans since early this year. Overall, he's been encouraged by what he's seen.

"It looks like they have their act together," he said from his car while en route to "The Office's" production offices in Van Nuys, Calif. "It seems to me that a lot of the fans would like to meet each other. There's sort of a community there; they've become friends online."


The visit, he said, would be productive on two levels. First, they could participate in the convention itself, most likely in some sort of Q&A forum. Second, it would give the writers a better feel for the area and the chance to grab a few new story ideas.

Then there's the matter of the cast. Convention planners have extended invites to everyone from star Steve Carell (buffoonish boss Michael Scott) on down, but so far no one has made the commitment to show up. Originally, the week leading up to the convention was to be a hiatus week for the cast, but the network's demand for an additional episode has turned it into a full-shooting week, Mr. Daniels said."

Maybe it's just me, but the convention certainly seems pretty haphazard.  Here it is, September 17... the convention only a month away... and they still don't know IF the writers will come, or IF any of the cast will be attending.  I've never seen a convention like this in my life.  Hell, I'd be willing to put my money down if I knew for a FACT who was going to be there.  As it stands? It's like a huge roulette game-- the ball might come up Greg Daniels, Steve Carell, and Jenna Fischer... or it might just be a total wash-out.  I wish I could attend regardless, but right now, I just don't have enough incentive to try and swing it.
