I have watched some good programming. I can’t remember any of it. The only thing that sticks in my mind is the train wreck of a Hugo Award ceremony last night. As a measure of just how angry I am, I haven’t even looked at the stats yet.
I have been trying to see what future Worldcons and bids are saying about online features. Sadly most of them seem to be taking the line of, “well streaming all of our in-person programming would be impossible so we can’t have any online component.” I hope I don’t have to point out how disingenous that is.
Worldcon needs to change, but hardly anyone involved in running it seems to want it to.
Anyway, time to talk about last night. Separate post.
