Penguicon ’07

Penguicon, a Michigan convention with events appealing both to SF/Fantasy fans and Linux/Open Source types runs from April 20-22. This year’s noteworthy guests include Charles Stross, Steve Jackson, Nick Sagan, and Bruce Schneier.

Among the somewhat less noteworthy people rounding out the weekend’s many panels you’ll find a Bureau42 author.

I’ll be part of Stross’s Friday evening panel on the cultural influences of H.P. Lovecraft, and on two Sunday panels, including a discussion of problems with Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s final two (televised) seasons.

Will any other Bureau-crats be heading to Troy next weekend?

    Another non-big name attendee will be the author(s?) (the Ferret) of the Home on the Strange comic strip. (www.homeonthestrange.com) He’ll be talking on a number of panels.

      We’re on a panel together, in fact. Online names in the real world can be a strange experience, though my Con-badges always identify me both by my given name and as "Timeshredder."

        I can imagine; I play Living Arcanis, formerly an RPGA campaign, and there are some people I only know by the character name, which is close.

        Anyway, I hope it goes well; I’ll be in Vegas to have some pre-GAMA Trade Show fun.

    Bruce Scheier but I’d rather see Bruce Schneier :)

    Seriously though this sounds like an awesome conference, wish I could be there :(
