Check out the Penguicon 5.0 website if you might consider coming to Troy for a combined science fiction/linux/open source programming convention with swordfighting, music, gaming, dancing, parties, a dealers room, and such luminaries on the program as systems security expert Bruce Schneier, nanotech industry guide Christine Peterson, webcomic artists Randy Milholland (Something Positive), The Ferrett (Home on the Strange), and Rob Balder (PartiallyClips), Gaming hero Steve Jackson, and SF authors Charlie Stross, Elizabeth Bear, John Scalzi, Nick Sagan (Carl Sagan's son), Karl Schroeder, Sarah Zettel, Tobias S. Buckell, and Sarah Monette.

Online registration is open until April 15 at just $45 for the weekend.

I will be busy for the convention being Charlie's GoH Liaison, which I expect will be a lot of fun. I'm also on a couple panels (Getting Things Done and Women in Technology, last I checked). Rikhei and Hope and I would welcome a fourth female roommate if you're looking for a room (the hotel is sold out). If anyone has a room staying over to Monday morning I could crash in, that would be a help, too.

So, yes, let's see, Penguicon 4.0 was this past weekend. The Buffy show went well, I saw (and flirted with) lots of friends, I enjoyed hanging out with the guest I was liaison to, Chris DiBona, who was both interesting and easy to "handle," and as a bonus for the weekend, my husband Bill came home early on Saturday (He'll make it back out to the trail, we think, but he seems to have a toe or metatarsal injury that needs rest to heal). [livejournal.com profile] atdt1991 gave him a lift out to the con, so I got to have a reunion with him as well.
