Worldcon Program Schedule

Since it seems everyone else is doing so, here's the one program item on which I'm scheduled at Worldcon:

How not to enjoy this convention

Who would be silly enough to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fandom by offering to run a science fiction convention? A group of masochists talk about how and why they still run conventions and why you should start planning for Aussiecon Five now.

Mark Olson, Fran Dowd, Garry Dalrymple, James Bacon, Carilona Gomez, Kevin Standlee

Sunday 1300 Room 217

I also will be at all of the WSFS Business Meetings, which have a remarkably terse and uninformative description of "Involves site selection for future Worldcon," which is true as far as it goes but doesn't go far enough and is likely to leave anyone who doesn't already know what it is in the dark. The business meetings are scheduled for Friday 1000 Room 216; Saturday 1000 Room 216; Sunday 1000 Room 216; and if necessary Monday 1000 Room 216. (We haven't had to hold a Monday meeting since 1992.)

I'll be recording all of the meetings, and I'll upload the recordings when I can, which may not be until I get back from Australia on account of bandwidth restrictions. (Alternatively, I may generate a low-res version that I can upload from Australia and then a higher-resolution one for upload later when I get back to a high-bandwidth connection.)
