MidSouthCon

This will be the first blog post ever done on the iPad, so excuse both brevity and typos.

MidSouthCon is great and everyone is super friendly. Yesterday I had a panel on con etiquette (really, it all just boils down to Wil Wheaton’s law – Don’t be a dick.) then opening ceremonies and a meet the guest event. The con is small but fun, and this is its 30th year, which is nifty. And I got a swell gift basket and got to sit next to Mark Goddard, who Lost In Space fans will recognize as Major Don West.

Today, among other things, I’m giving a talk on electronic publishing where I fear I’ll be just saying more of the same stuff everyone else does, but we’ll see. I do want to talk about it in terms of the various sectors: readers, authors, publishers, agents, and editors, because I think everyone’s got a different horse in this race.

Tomorrow more con, and then I’m flying back Monday and fleeing this strange and frightening day star. Back to Seattle gray!

    I thought you did an excellent job on your talk and the panels that I attended. I gained a lot of useful knowledge that I’m working to apply now. Hope you enjoyed your time here in the south!

    Hubby gave me an ipad for Christmas and I wasn’t really sure what to do with it, but you’re the second person I’ve seen talking about blogging (and even podcasting!) from a con and now I’m suddenly VERY excited about my iPad. I’m going to a writing conference Saturday and I can’t wait to see what my little traveling computer can do!!! Ideas are already percolating!
