Over at Eastercon, Geri Sullivan and Ben Yalow did a video presentation via the LXtra webcast about the Reno in 2001 Worldcon bid. There’s not a lot of new information, and having Geri on Skype videophone from the US introduced some annoying time delays, but it was great to see something like this being done. You can watch it here. It lasts 20 minutes.
Talking of Worldcon, Kevin and I will be in Montreal next weekend for a committee meeting. I do intend to take a good look around and shoot some video. We’ll also be tweeting, though not with the iPhone due to roaming costs so the photos will have to wait. Given that the BSFA’s Eastercon coverage through CoverItLive appears to have worked well, I’m planning to do something similar, and hopefully other attendees will tweet too (the hash tag will be #worldcon). Because we’ll be in meetings or out and about a lot of the time we won’t be able to keep an eye on it, so it would be nice if one or two people could offer to do so for us. I’d also like to schedule a Q&A session, but I can’t guarantee that as I don’t know what our schedule will be.
