Tomorrow, I'm off for Bay Con

Final reminder of my Bay Con panel schedule. I'd love to see some friendly faces in the audience.

Friday, 25/07 16:00 Growing Up Geek - How do you raise a fannish child? What do you do as a second generation fan? How do you deal with the interesting calls from school, or the utter confusion from your own classmates when you read your 'what I did over the summer' paper?

Friday, 5/25/07 21:30 Rules of Metaphysics - It's magic, but there are rules... Our writers and gamers discuss how they create the rules that make their magical worlds work.

Saturday, 5/26/07 14:30 World Creation for Gamers - How does world design differ between written, video and game platforms?

Sunday, 5/27/07 10:00 Fun Ways to Kill Your Characters - A gamer/goth, anthropologist, pharmacologist, swordmaster, a Ranger and fan discuss all of the creative ways you can kill off your characters. It's not all blood and guts!

Sunday, 5/27/07 14:30 Geek of My Dreams - Where is my Geek? Panelists discuss what makes someone a geek, and what makes them sexually attractive.

Sunday, 5/27/07 20:00 So There I Was... - "So There I Was... in the middle of the field when..." Join RPGers as they share their gaming war stories. Bring your own to share.

Monday, 5/28/07 10:00 Pandemic Flu - Spanish Flu. Hong Kong Flu. Bird Flu. What is it that generates an epidemic? What stops it? Is it inevitable that we will have another flu epidemic or can we stop it?

Monday, 5/28/07 14:30 Why and When to use a Pseudonym - Pseudonyms are frequently used by authors. But why would you want to use a different name? Isn't there an advantage in name recognition? Our panelists have all used different names in their writing, and will explain the pros and cons of using a pseudonym.

We'll be at KublaCon nearby (who's weird idea was it to have both cons on the same weekend?), but I hope you have a wonderful time (and Growing Up Geek sounds very interesting)!

My guess is KublaCon, but I can't find anything on their site to indicate how long it has been running.

I, too, will be at KublaCon. I know deirdremoon was trying to get over to BayCon on Friday, so I may sneak a trip over in the evening if nothing is going on over at KC.

Have fun if I miss you!

I'm sorry I'll miss those panels! They sound fun!

Travel safe, and have a good time. I can't wait to hear about it!
