That was an even longer day, and I’m only back at my room now because I skipped the Hugo Loser’s Party.
The space issues are vastly reduced now. The panel I was on today had 20 people in the audience for a room rated to seat 200. Of course it wasn’t perfect. Sometimes programming guesses wrong when it goes to the popularity of a panel. But for the most part anyone who wanted a seat for one.
The text-based coverage of the Hugos went pretty well, which is good because the live video failed. Thanks to Kevin, to Susan de Guardiola who stood in for Mur, and to everyone who joined us online.
And most importantly:
TEA AND JEOPARDY WON A HUGO!!!!!!
