The Business Meeting this morning was a resounding success for the forces of progress. We saved the Semiprozine category (despite some last-minute skullduggery); we ratified the “Making the Web Eligible” motion, which will hopefully put an end to all of the claims that online writing is not eligible for the Hugos; and we ratified with Graphic Story category, which will now be with us until at least 2012. Yay all round.
We finished a little early, and I was able to get out and have lunch, get my photo taken by Kyle Cassidy, vote in site selection and support the Texas in 2013 bid. The it was time for the Greatest Fanwriter Besides Me panel, which I will report on at length in ConReporter.com when I get the time. I have also taken a quick look around the art show and dealers’ room, both of which are sadly small and disappointing.
Now, however, I am back at the hotel getting changed and about to head off for a 5-6 hour stint working backstage at the Masquerade. If all goes well there will be live reporting from the event here.
