Tew's Day!

Happy birthday to beetiger!


Seriously, ugh.
Was dragging all yesterday. Am rescheduling all of my after-work-today stuff so I can just come home and rest.

Arisia Schedule!
is up! If you're a panelist, take a look. If you have any questions about lit track, let me know.

I expect to spend a chunk of today reviewing the sessions that I didn't schedule and making sure they have the panelists they ought to - guess we had more room? Which does not suck! But I want to make sure those are solid panels. Also, a few of the panels have had some shuffling of participants, and there are a few that I'm not okay with, so I'll suss that out later. (Yes, I really want the IAF board member on the interstitial fiction panel, not the person who does not write interstitial fiction, please do not switch those around.)

LiveJournal and Gender
LJ was going to require you to choose and display your gender. But it looks like that is not going to happen after all.

Must Run.
But will hopefully be on later. After I go through the Arisia schedule with a fine-toothed comb to see what other madness has transpired. If you see something that makes you go "um", do let me know.

Bye for now!

Oi, Bostonians!

BARCC has a new section of its website, and they need your help testing it - specifically, they need a survivor and the survivor's significant other.

If you're a local survivor with an SO are are willing to come to our Cambridge or Boston office for a half-hour website test, let me know, and I'll put you in touch with the person handling this. Totally painless. Adam and I have already done it.
