Speaking of conventions, my next aim is Torcon (unless I find that PhilCon has some particularly interesting programming). Though I tend not to participate in the parties and whatnot that seem to be such a mainstay of these conventions (what can I say, I'm just not the partying sort. something about being anti-social, I believe), I've very much enjoyed the panels & programs I've seen in the two WorldCons I've been to.
For now, I'm hanging out in the San José airport, catching up on email (sort of) and waiting for my plane to board. More updates on the Con later in the week...I took lots of notes.
