Wiscon - Friday Part 2

I went out for the first Wiscon dinner party this evening, even if it’s actually my second Wiscon. It’s fun to meet new people interested enough to make the pilgrimage to Wiscon. I met Rain from Ann Arbor, Kasi from West Virginia, and others. Conversations ranged through biology, science journalism, paganism, women’s studies, etc. Opening ceremonies were delayed by technical delays, once the projector was working we watched a short slide show featuring previous GoHs. After that was the traditional opening program.

I went to two more panels this evening, one on what speculating about what a feminist think tank would look like, the other on James Tiptree, Jr. aka Alice Sheldon. There’s a feminist sf/f wiki soliciting contributions from interested people.
