mdlbear: the positively imaginary half of a cubic mandelbrot set (Default)

Didn't spend much time at all at the drama llama petting zoo Silicon this year. A panel on Saturday, dinner with the Cat, and Peter Beagle's concert in the evening. A quick turn around the dealer's room, which didn't take long. The kids gofered, and Colleen spent a couple of hours there today.

Very small con, and the hotel, once the local SF con hotel, sucks. We won't bother going next year, I don't think.

Didn't get much else done, though, beyond running errands, taking care of Colleen, and some writing, mostly working on a big river post on love and friendship. Music? Not nearly as much work as I intended.

I've been hearing that most cons are not as big as they once were. Have you come across this as well? Just curious.

Hope Colleen is feeling better. You guys are in our thoughts.

Most of the cons I go to -- filk cons, Baycon, Loscon -- seem to be staying the same or growing. Worldcon and Westercon vary depending on location and don't really have a consistent trend.

Silicon has been dying for years, a victim of bad venue, bad date, and being run by idiots.

You were right the first time.

I am never doing that con again. Not even as a ghost.
