So, this coming weekend is the 50th Boskone, Boston's main non-media SF convention. (I'd have said main literary SF convention except Readercon pretty much has the rights to that title, even though it's about an hour's drive out of town.) I am, of course, over-programmed.
Here's the raw dump of my (provisional) schedule:
Fri 20:00 : Harbor II (Westin) Singularity: There Can Be Only One
Sat 11:00 : Harbor II (Westin) Dataliths: Digging the Idea of the Programmer/Archaeologist
Sat 12:00 : Galleria-Autographing (Westin) Autographing
Sat 13:00 : Harbor II (Westin) Rise of the Machines, Reconsidered
Sat 16:00 : Burroughs (Westin) What If—What's Left?
Sat 17:00 : Galleria (Westin) Autographing (NOTE: this will be cut short early at 5:40pm rather than running for a full hour)
Sun 11:00 : Galleria-Kaffeeklatsch 1 (Westin) Kaffeeklatsche
Sun 13:00 : Lewis (Westin) Reading: Charles Stross
Sun 14:00 : Harbor II (Westin) The Genre's All A-Twitter
(I'd normally refuse to do a Singularity panel, for much the same reason China Mieville doesn't do Tolkien any more, but the Guest of Honor at Boskone 50 is Vernor Vinge, so, er, exception time.)
((Note that this is a pretty harsh program for a 2.5 day convention; in terms of work, I reckon one hour participating on a panel in front of an audience is at least as draining as three hours in the audience. This is a cut-down version of what they originally threw at me. If you're there, don't be surprised if there are some re-arrangements ...))
Blogging may be light during travel.
