Conflux is over

Conflux is over

Well Conflux was fun. It was a bit of a whirlwind, but MCing with Richard Harland seemed to be warmly received. I really enjoyed all the panels that I watched or was part of. At conventions panel fatigue can set in and all you want to do is hang out at the bar, but all the panels were so captivating that the bar got neglected.

I enjoyed the company of everyone at the convention and it was lovely to feel part of such a nice community.

edit: In the late night joy of blogging I mooshed two blog posts together, I’ve removed the philosophical bit that was here and will shape it into a separate post down the track

So far I’ve found photos at the Voyager blog

As well as Cat Sparks’ perennial fabulousness Conflux 08

A post that contains Gillian facing the cream pie and here’s some more speakeasy shots (and a bit of the voices launch)

The NewYork speakeasy dinner proving to be the most popular place to take photographs

An excellent selection of blogging links from another excellent convention organiser. And this selection of blogging links as well

Closing Ceremony

Conflux time of year

Conflux time of year

Conflux is almost upon us, Canberra’s annual Science Fiction Convention.

I’m really excited about the panels this year, lots of interesting, juicy subject matter, with some strong social/cultural analysis elements that makes my inner anthropologist squee with joy. I’m not sure how much I’ll get to experience much however, I’m co-mcing the opening and closing ceremonies as well as the open mic night, I’m runnning a three hour workshop on the Business of Comics, chairing two panels and on another.

I’m so glad I’m mcing with Richard Harland, as the responsibility of opening and closing feels quite large and Richard seems quite lovely.

Wish me luck!
