For the second time in a month, it looks like I might be on a tv newscast for a sentence or two. I left Convergence a bit after midnight, late Friday evening. I ducked into the Bridge, where I had been working as Triage, a position that acts much like a greeter, answering the first questions and sending people to Registration (by far the most common question) or to the right people (if I can't answer/help easily). I wasn't on duty, but I take the job seriously, and there was a lost-looking guy standing around. He turned out to be Eric Anderson of Channel 5 News, waiting for a badge and a chance to speak to Concom about filming a segment at Convergence. When that bit of business was concluded, he interviewed me about fandom and Convergence (with the Atrium in the background) and I might do a longer segment on Shockwave later.
Convergence is fun. Got a chance to hang out with old friends and made some new ones. This morning I'm on a Heinlein panel. At 11 am, one of the reasons I left fairly early last night. Possibly a longer report later, but in the meantime, here are two pictures of the Bridge, ie Operations ie Ops. The theme of Convergence this year is Creature Features, and the Spirit of Microprogramming has infested even the Bridge Crew. added See Saturday and Sunday.
