For the Sake of Appearances

Despite my turtlelike preferences, I do appear in public from time-to-time, in the hopes of shilling my wares. This year, it seems, I’ll be poking my head out at three conventions.

The most recent, tentative invitation, is for the Rose City Comic Con. I’ve been asked to sit on a panel discussing entertainment law, as I have at least some notional experience on both sides of the issue. I’m awaiting details. But at this point it looks like I’ll be there Friday, the 13th (ooh, spooky) of September. I suppose I’ll drive directly over to the convention center from my office, still in lawyer mode.

Later this year I’ll be at Orycon. I don’t know what my panel schedule will be, since the schedule hasn’t yet been established. Or, if it has, it hasn’t been distributed yet. I was somewhat disappointed with the options this year, so I volunteered for only a few panels. It looked to me as if at least half of the offerings concerned socio-political issues. I don’t attend sci-fi conventions to air my views on politics. I’ll keep the web-log updated once I receive the schedule.

In just a few weeks I’ll be at MALCon, in the Denver area. If the web log has any Colorado readers, drop by the con and say hello. Here’s my schedule for that show:
