Eastercon was rather wonderful, and I've been putting off saying so only because I wanted time to write a long report. But since I'm busier than ever, let's go with this shorter appreciation. The committee/ops/gophers and tech were terrific, and so was everyone else. It was a particular pleasure to talk to several unpublished writers, whose books I look forward to reading in the near future.
I had fun-in-a-gi with my fellow GoH Juliet McKenna in our beat down, manfully held back tears when our Writers quiz team failed to defeat the Scientists, got technical on the AI panel (not my field, but I do know functional programming and formal methods), and had a great time on all the other panels too.
Massive, massive thanks to Drs Christine & Michael Davidson and everybody else.
