Along with the known bids, the San Jose in 2018 Worldcon Bid made what could be considered its official hard launch (as opposed to the "soft launch" things done in the past few weeks) with bid chair Andy Trembley (bovil) officially announcing that yes, SFSFC (the people behind the past two Bay Area Worldcons, including the one I co-chaired, ConJosé) is bidding to host the 2018 Worldcon in San José. (And yes, I'm part of the bid as a director of SFSFC. I've already asked if I can chair the Business Meeting if we win.) SJ2018 will be holding a bid party Saturday night of Westercon and will have a table (but not a party) at NASFiC in a couple of weeks.
We spent the afternoon after the Fannish Inquisition doing our own things. I had several smoffish discussions with various people, while Lisa took Scott Sanford (who was able to come to Westercon as a last-minute helper for dealer AmyCat) to lunch. We didn't see any other programming, but I observed that the halls were very quiet between program changeover times, so a pretty high percentage of the members must have been interested in the program.
