This is a bit of a cross post from my blog (www.ickletayto.com) re: my upcoming panels at CONvergence in Minneapolis:
It’s all out geekery with books, films, radio plays, science, skepticism and party rooms.
I’m going to be on a number of panels, some of which are part of the SkepchickCon… So I’m super excited.
Here’s my “absolutely will be at as I am on the top table” schedule:
Thursday 4th July:
5:00pm: British Slang 101
I plan on taking over this panel and talking
solely about Irish Slang.. it’s FAR superior to
British slang anyways :oP
7:00pm: There’s more to British Comedy than Python
I mean, clearly there’s more. I may
crowdsource some ideas from twitter before
the con, or leave a comment here listing your
favourite British comedies.. the less said
about Mrs Brown tho, the better..
Saturday 6th July:
12:30pm: The Gods of Geekdom
They mention the gods of comic books in the
listing for this panel. I don’t read comics, but I
do read all of the fantasy.. the one question
I’ll be raising is how can Brandon Sanderson
still be Mormon?
10:00pm: The British Anti-Science Invasion
I’ll mostly be talking vaccines here. It’s a
pretty good thing that all my masters
assignments revolved around vaccines.. I will
be putting all of that research to good use in
this panel. It’ll be infinitely better than
Sunday 7th July:
3:30pm: Lesser known British Comedy
I think I’m going to stick with things not
traditionally looked on as comedy here.. I may
even stray into podcast territory.
I’m going through the rest of the program atm and trying to figure out how to split myself into 5 or get one of them Time-Turner thingamajigs.. but once I do figure out what I absolutely cannot miss I’ll update my SCHED (It’s a thing).
I am totally looking forward to #CVG2013..
It’s gonna be LEGEN – (wait for it) – DARY! Legendary.
