That's a very cool place to get to give a talk!

Little far away for me to actually attend, though, and I'd have to be back in Minneapolis for the Minicon work party that night.

I predict that this, being the future, someone should capture the audio and video to post on the net somewhere.

Being stuck on the Left Coast, I'm with crenelle - video post online for those of us who can't make this Very Awesome Event!

Boy, you don't stay at home a lot, do you?

I was on a ConFrancisco panel that was the obverse or converse or reverse of that: Futures that Science Fiction Missed.
Mostly little things that fit in your pockets.

Is early April chery blossom season in DC?

We're actually traveling less this year than last. I just decided not to go to the Nebulas in Los Angeles, even though Joss Whedon will be there. But we've been planning this trip to DC for a long time, and I believe that it is indeed cherry blossom time.

Heh, I live in DC, so I can come to your talk. I've marked it on my calendar.

Excellent! See you then!
