My WorldCon Schedule

Did I just type that title?

Yep. I did. I am filled with mixed emotions. Part of me is squeeing in the highest tone ever recorded in human history. Did glass just shatter behind you? Did the earth just shake? That was me.

The other part of me is hiding in deep neurosis. Those of you who know me, will understand why. I’m sure I’ll be fine. Yep. I will. Mmhmm. Yep. Yep. Yep.

If you’re attending WorldCon, I am officially on one panel regarding podcasting! Notice that I’m moderating. This should be very very interesting. ūüėČ

When: Sat 15:30
Location:  P-512BF
Title:  Podcasting: Flash in the Pan or Wave of the Future?
Session ID:  887
All Participants:  Brenda Cooper, Ellen Kushner, James Patrick Kelly,
Kate Baker, Lucas Moreno
Moderator:  Yourself
Description:  Once upon a time, radio was made up of many little
independents and (in some countries) a few pirates among the
monoliths. Today it is almost entirely corporate, regional or
religious. Do podcasts offer a means to loosen up the market? Can they
change the demographics of listeners? Grow and mobilize specialized
interest groups? What is that they offer that makes podcasting
distinctive.
Duration:  1:30 hrs:min
Language:  English
Track: Human Culture
AV/Internet request:  None
Notes:  Feel free to bring along thumb drives or MP3 players so that
you can play clips of podcasts you think interesting.

I am also participating in the WorldCon writing workshop and will be running from my critique to this panel, but I do get to sit in the company of Mary Robinette Kowal and Jay Lake. <More inhuman squeeing inserted here.>
