Worldcon Day 3: A Little More Time for Us
Today's Main WSFS Business Meeting had a long and challenging agenda (thirteen constitutional amendments), but managed to clear the entire agenda in less than the three hours allotted to it. That means that there will be no substantive business at the Sunday meeting except for the formal receipt of the 2016 Worldcon Site Selection results. That's a relief. I'll summarize the Business Meeting results and post the videos Lisa shot in a later message.( More than just Business Meetings todayCollapse )
We returned to the hotel, I renewed the "high-speed" internet (not nearly as fast as it should have been for what we're paying for it) connection, and set the three parts of today's WSFS Business Meeting videos to uploading. I then wrote two items for the Loncon newsletter and updated the Hugo Awards web site with information about the UStream broadcasts of the Retro-Hugos (apparently the audio quality was nonexistent or awful) and the expectations that Sunday's 2014 Hugo Ceremony will not share those problems.( Send in the WSFS Inspectors!Collapse )
Having actually had a few hours to look at the convention fixed exhibits, Lisa and I were starting to get hungry when we ran into Linda Deneroff again, and the three of us got dinner from the Italian restaurant along the food court concourse. Yes, we've not been that adventurous and have mostly been eating at the food court and from food purchased from the grocery store next to our hotel. Too busy.( Subaltern Hayes Goes it AloneCollapse )
Around 11:30 PM, I made my excuses, and it turns out Lisa had been looking for me. She'd spent most of the time that I'd been helping out Montreal sitting at the San José in 2018 bid table, and was ready to turn in, as was I. We trekked back to the hotel, completing a day of about 16,500 steps, and started the wind-down.
