This Week In Me

Which sounds like a 1970s art-porn film, doesn’t it, but is just really about my posting schedule here this week.

And it goes like this: Today and tomorrow will be spent by me getting work completed in the real world so that I have everything wrapped up by the time I head to Anticipation (this year’s Worldcon) on Wednesday, from which I will return next Monday. While at Anticipation I don’t expect to be chained to the computer.

So: Hey, probably a slow week coming up here on Whatever. Will you be able to handle it? Well, you know. I’m trying to prepare you as best I can, here. The rest is up to you.

Once again, whilst I travel, most of my communication is likely to be in Twitter form, the online methadone to the sweet Whatever smack, so you can check that out either with the “Whatwitters” sidebar over there to the right, or by following me on Twitter.

Also, for those of you who yearn for total Worldcon saturation, my posts here and my Twitter comments are also currently being fed into ConReporter.com, an aggregation site for WorldCon attendees and notables. Aside from me, other people being fed into the site include Neil Gaiman, Cory Doctorow, Elizabeth Bear, Mary Robinette Kowal, Lou Anders, Jay Lake and many other very cool folks. One stop Worldcon shopping, basically.

And now you’ve been fully briefed on the week in me.

The New SFWA.org Site

After living in 1996 for the past fifteen years, the SFWA.org site has jumped impressively into the 21st century with a new design that is functional, useful for members and casual visitors, and also but not trivially, pretty. It’s the most outward example of the revitalization that’s been going on in SFWA for the last year or so. Thanks for the pretty new Web site go to a lot of people, but I’ll note my pal Mary Robinette Kowal has been instrumental in getting things done, so be sure to go thank her and her crew for all their hard work.

Now, go! Visit!
