When Worldcon leaves the sacred earth of North America for a year, we United-Can-Mex-Americans get all uppity and insist on still having a big literary-focused sci-fi convention on our own soil. Thus, the North American Science Fiction Convention was born, and I will be puffing out my chest in continental pride with other attendees this coming weekend. I have the pleasure of being a science guest, and have been recruited on to the following group activities:

  • Science Which We All Know Is Wrong – Friday, 11am, RCC 306A
  • What Podcasts Can Do For You – Saturday, 10:30am, RCC 203
  • Health and Today’s Fandom – Saturday, 3pm, RCC 305B
  • Where Are The Next Mad Scientists – Saturday, 8pm, RCC 306B

Laura is also joining in the science guesthood fun, and will be enriching these panels:

  • So You Want To Be An Astronaut – Thursday, 7pm, RCC 306B
  • Space Law – Friday, 3pm, RCC 306B

ReConStruction is running from August 5-8, 2010, in Raleigh, NC at the convention center and associated hotels. As always, I will be intermittently Tweeting the oddness, and feel free to say hi if you stop by!

  1. I am intrigued by the “Science Which We All Know is Wrong” panel. What’s that one all about? And “Space Law” sounds pretty sweet too. Yes, I am a nerd.

    Any chance of recordings for those of us not cool enough to attend? Also, why do you have to do all the good panels at cons I can’t go to? (‘Cause, y’know, I get to go to so many cons…)

  2. I am intrigued by said panel, as well… they didn’t provide any descriptions to clue me in to what the person was thinking when they suggested it. I can see it going into some very good directions, or some very bad ones.

    Allow me to join you in your nerdery about “Space Law” – that sounds pretty cool.

    As to recording, I’ll have to see. Apart from the podcasting panel I’m on, I expect there might be some issues with permissions and such, let alone equipment.

    And I do the good panels at the cons you don’t attend to roundly mock you for your absence, to teach you a lesson, etc. 🙂
