This year I seem to have wound up unusually heavy on comics panels -- understandable, but I may find myself a bit overwhelmed with the sheer geekery of it. (All of Arisia is geeky, but there's something *especially* geeky about comic-book panels.) The stuff I'm on/running:
- Comics Year in Review (Friday, 7pm) -- hmm. What *has* come out this year that was especially noteworthy? I have fewer ideas than usual.
- When Comics Creators Go Off the Deep End (Friday, 10pm)
- Worst Episode Ever (Saturday, 1pm) -- suggestions solicited. I can think of some ripe examples, but I'm sure I'm missing a lot.
- Future Directions in Personal Computing (Saturday, 5:30pm) -- with Alex Feinman, among others
- SCA Ball / Renaissance Dance (Sunday, 3pm) -- everyone is strongly encouraged to come to this. We need both dancers with some clue to spread around the floor, and folks to explain the SCA.
- The Finite vs. Open-Ended Story (Monday, 1pm) -- the one comics panel I'm really looking forward to
How about you? What are you looking forward to as likely highlights of Arisia?
Oh, and Kate's not going to be at the con (she has a conflict this weekend), so I'm going to be looking for people to hang out with. This is one of those "yes, I'm shyer than you think" things; invites to join into stuff would be welcomed...
