I’m going to Philcon, yes I am!
And here’s my schedule:
Sat 4:00 PM in Plaza III (Three) (1 hour)
BEAUTY IN THE FUTURE (1752)
When technology makes changing one’s appearance as easy as changing one’s clothes or hair color, will our perception of what it means to be beautiful change? Will it make personality more important or less?
Sat 6:00 PM in Crystal Ballroom Two (1 hour)
CAN GOOD STORIES BE BASED ON BAD SCIENCE? (1820)
Balonium might not fit into the periodic table, but is it legitimate to predicate a story on its existence? Does it detract from a story’s enjoyability when the premise is something you know just ain’t so?
Sun 1:00 PM in Executive Suite 623 (1 hour)
READING – CHRISTIE MEIERZ, JON MCGORAN (2013)
Of course, (1 hour) actually means (50 minutes), but you get the idea.
See you there!
