New Zealand in 2020

So, the assembled overseas visitors enjoyed themselves so much at Au Contraire that they threw $20 bills at Norman Cates and encouraged him to bid for a Worldcon. It is all Sean Williams’ fault. He started it.

Quite how serious the Kiwis are about this remains to be seen. I think those who threw money today have got their money’s worth already. But if they do decide to go through with it I think it is definitely possible.

Also a lot of Australians will be very grateful at the thought of a decade off.
