Hello World, Welcome to Helsinki!


Well look at that, I think we done got ourselves a Worldcon. 🙂

The results are technically pending until confirmed at the Saturday WSFS Business Meeting, but here are the numbers from the count:

  • Helsinki 1363
  • Washington 878
  • Montreal 228
  • Nippon 120

In a 4-way race, Helsinki wins on the first round of counting with 52% of the vote.

Thank you, fandom. See you all in 2017.

I am so very proud of all my Finnish friends right now.

By the way, it won’t be snowing in Helsinki in August. In summer Finland looks more like this:
