Arisia 2011 Schedule 
1st-Dec-2010 09:48 am
Busy
If you're a panelist, you got yours today too! Here's mine. (When I'm listed first, I'm the moderator.)

Friday
5:00pm: Food Communicating Culture in Literature. (novelfriend, thespian, John Bowker, me.)
6:30pm: Interstitial Arts: A Discussion. (As many IAF people as we can get, but officially, ellen_kushner, deliasherman, badger2305, Andrea Hairston, Sarah Smith...)

Saturday
12:30pm: Take Back the Sci-Fi. (me, cluegirl, aquila_dominus, novelfriend, girlyengine.)
3:30pm: Alternative Activism. (me, lordlnyc, tehuti, Darkteddybear, Bendyyogagirl.)
5:00pm: SF and Fantasy as the Modern Myth. (me, feste_sylvain, Gail Martin, Renee Johnson, John McDaid.)
6:30pm: READING. (me, Daniel Rabuzzi, thunderpigeon.)

Sunday
9:30pm: The City and Science Fiction. (yendi, stakebait, Toni Lay, Robert Davies, me.)

Monday
11:00am: Sexual Assault and Harrassment in Fandom. (me, cluegirl, aquila_dominus, asim, sweetmmeblue.)
12:30pm: Genius Loci: Setting and Story. (me, ellen_kushner, Vikki Ciaffone.)

Obviously the thing I want you ALL TO GO TO is my reading.

I'm sad that I didn't get more panels with certain people, but there's a lot of stuff on this schedule (59 lit track items alone!), and juggling is. I knew I'd see Clue and Dominus on those two panels! And I'm glad I get to do a panel with each of my partners-in-attendance.

Saturday is problematic. The most logical thing to drop of SF and Fantasy as the Modern Myth, if we're speaking just timewise - but no way! Alternative Activism I'm less attached to, because for me that falls in the category of "this is a blog post, not a panel," but I do want to represent for BARCC. Anyone want to volunteer to bring me food? Maybe the guys won't mind if I have a light nom during their parts of the reading.

This is actually, barely, fewer program items than I was on at Readercon. But it's more time, because Arisia panels are an hour and fifteen minutes this year. My schedule for Friday, Sunday, and Monday looks totally sane, but I am giving Saturday the side eye.

Got my schedule too. Still hoping to get snuck into "IP for the Creative Person" (apparently it's sufficiently popular, so I'm hoping for a cancellation or conflict), but I'm on "IP and Derivative Work," as well as the other legal-esque panels (the more general "I Can Go to Jail for THAT?", and two anime panels touching on legality), even moderating one ("The Business of Anime"), and then two music panels. Not too bad, even if 9:30 AM Saturday is a bit nasty.
1st-Dec-2010 03:14 pm (UTC)
Yeah - 9:30am is not popular.

Story behind that: The hotel is much bigger, and the function space is more spread out. So the Head of Programming decided that panels should run 1:15, and there should be :15 to get from one panel to the next - hence 1:30 blocks and things starting at 9:30am instead of the usual 10.
1st-Dec-2010 03:16 pm (UTC)
Truth be told I'll be fine--it's easier than getting up for classes, anyway.

And frankly the buffer sounds like a good thing, not just because of space (and can I say it's great that the hotel is bigger? *grin*).
1st-Dec-2010 03:17 pm (UTC)
Dude! I am so thrilled about the hotel change! This is the one Boskone's been using, so I'm already familiar. Great function space, *tons* of room, friendly staff, good food, and WORKING ELEVATORS.
1st-Dec-2010 03:18 pm (UTC)
Sweet.
1st-Dec-2010 03:26 pm (UTC)
It's a new hotel?
I better bother to pay attention to these things.
1st-Dec-2010 03:27 pm (UTC)
Westin Waterfront.
1st-Dec-2010 03:50 pm (UTC)
It's new for Arisia (though Boskone's been there for a few years now), and relatively new as a hotel (the first time Boskone was there, it had been open for 6 months or so IIRC and there was an entire section of the hotel that was still being built out).
2nd-Dec-2010 01:49 pm (UTC)
OK, I need to check that out then.
1st-Dec-2010 03:20 pm (UTC)
Still haven't gotten mine. Are they being sent to staff first?
1st-Dec-2010 03:21 pm (UTC)
Check your spam folder! I've seen non-staff posting theirs.
1st-Dec-2010 03:33 pm (UTC)
Nope. No sign of it.
1st-Dec-2010 03:34 pm (UTC)
Bizarre.

Do you remember your login? You can just log in and see it. I can dig up your badge number if you need it.
1st-Dec-2010 03:41 pm (UTC)
Ah, yeah. Found it there. Too lazy for cut and paste now, but will post it later when the email comes.
1st-Dec-2010 03:44 pm (UTC)
The e-mail won't have your schedule, just the notice that you can see your schedule by logging in...
1st-Dec-2010 03:41 pm (UTC)
I didn't get one, I just saw the arisa LJ comm posting, as well as a couple of other people, and went to go look for myself.
1st-Dec-2010 03:51 pm (UTC)
I got my email today (timestamp says 0150). Not that you need it as long as you can find your badge ID somewhere, of course.
1st-Dec-2010 04:22 pm (UTC)
I got on the three panels I wanted to be on!!
1st-Dec-2010 04:42 pm (UTC)
Yay!
1st-Dec-2010 04:24 pm (UTC)
Only got in one panel, but it was the one I reallyreallyreally wanted, so I are a camper of the happy. (Although keeranky, it's a late one....)
2nd-Dec-2010 01:48 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I've got one 11pm panel.
1st-Dec-2010 07:37 pm (UTC)
Erm...I didn't get mine.
1st-Dec-2010 08:02 pm (UTC)
You may want to check your Spam folder--that's where mine ended up.
1st-Dec-2010 08:01 pm (UTC)
Thanks for posting this--mine got filtered into my spam folder, and I might not have noticed otherwise.

p.s.: looking forward to having a shared reading with you. And a panel with Adam, whom I'm not sure if I ever actually met.
1st-Dec-2010 08:03 pm (UTC)
Oh, which panel are you on with him?

And yay! D'you mind if I eat a sandwich while you're reading? Because that appears to be my only opportunity for food.
2nd-Dec-2010 03:46 am (UTC)
The Friday panel on tropes. Which means it's the only one that I might not actually make, because a. I always seem to miss Friday panels, despite my best intentions, and b. from the last couple of conventions I've been to, I also seem to be unable to make it to any panels that Gie is on.

Eating a sandwich is fine--though after you recently posted about watching a How I Met Your Mother marathon, I need to confirm that you're actually eating a sandwich, since I have a hard time reading aloud when there's smoke in the room.
2nd-Dec-2010 03:50 am (UTC)
Totally just a sandwich, I promise! I never did like the HIMYM kind of sandwich.
3rd-Dec-2010 04:13 pm (UTC)
That was never my thing either.

Say, do you happen to know Daniel Rabuzzi, who will be reading with us? His Web site <http://www.fartheryount.com/index.html> looks impressive, but I haven't had a chance to read any of the linked poems or stories.

I'm vaguely tempted to suggest we try to arrange some structure to the reading, but all I can think of offhand is to do a round or two of flash and/or poetry before reading from longer works, so that the audience will have a taste of each of our work right off the bat.

And is it early enough this time around to get in touch with Elayna about babysitting? At the moment, I'm not sure whether I'll have both kids with me or just Sarah.
9th-Dec-2010 02:35 pm (UTC)
'Tis! I'll let her know.

Daniel's great. And we could do that!
9th-Dec-2010 05:39 pm (UTC)
Kewl. Would you like to contact Daniel, or shall I? (I don't remember if his e-mail address is on the schedule, but it seems like most people's are).

Re babysitting, should I send a schedule of preferred times in advance, or negotiate it directly with Elayna, or how does that work? I might also be hiring Hildy Silverman's daughter to babysit as well but I figure it may be good to have backup, in case either sitter has conflicts with times or other clients (for example, if Elayna wants to attend our reading, then having Rayanna on call lets Rachel attend as well...)
2nd-Dec-2010 01:47 pm (UTC)
Let's see.
I'm conflicted with you on Saturday evening. (Shame, I like the panel and this means I don't hear you read.)

Friday I get to go to both your panels, and that's a good.

Sunday no conflict, and Monday no conflict.


2nd-Dec-2010 02:19 pm (UTC)
I shall read to you another time!
