Panels At ConFusion

After Many Attempts...

I finally got a readable copy of the preliminary Programming for Cryptic ConFusion this weekend, 23-25 January 2009, in Troy MI. Assuming that I don't die of this cold this week (grin), I am scheduled on three panels and a reading!

Friday, January 23
9:00 PM
Dennison III - Writers and Artists of the Future
(1 hr.) Jim Hines [M], Al Bogdan and Philip Edward Kaldon. Participants talk about the experience, was it a good thing or irrelevant to their career? What are Scientologists really like up close?

Saturday, January 24
11:00 AM
Salon E - Did Captain Kirk own a wallet?
(1 hr.) Cory Doctorow, Tobias Buckell [M], Philip Edward Kaldon, Paul Melko and Matthew Stewart-Fulton.
Economics and SF how has science fiction has portrayed economics of the future over the years how have things changed, what are some of the enduring themes?

Board Room - A reading with Dr. Philip Edward Kaldon
physicist and science fiction writer (1 hr.)

Sunday, January 25
Dennison I/II - Gadgeteering
Cory Doctorow, David Rozian, Merrie Haskell, Philip Edward Kaldon and Freon. Creating gadgets in SCIENCE fiction.

As I've commented before, ConFusion is a great conference and the Troy Marriott has been an excellent host hotel the last couple of years. Including the year we got blizzarded in and we had to stay an extra night. (grin)
