Another tux-wearing occasion  
A couple weeks ago I hinted on Twitter and Facebook that I had some squee-worthy news I could not yet reveal. Well, it's now public: I will be giving the Keynote Speech at this year's Nebula Awards!. I'll be presenting the same talk about my trip to "Mars" that was such a success at Potlatch.

Oh, congratulations! That's awesome!

Congrats, David!

I've only been to the Nebulas once, but I had a fabulous time. Enjoy yourself!

Another reason to be glad I'm going! :-)

Get someone to video it, so you can put it up on YouTube.

Woohoo! Excellent news. I hope you enjoy yourself, though I'm sure you will. Congratulations :) (I would squee, but I don't do those. ;) )

During the speech, may you spy Kim Stanley Robinson scribbling notes on his napkin.

Har! FYI, the Mars Society's "flag of Mars" that flies over the station is red, green, and blue in honor of KSR's books.

Holy CRAP, David. That's awesome.

That is SO cool! Congratulations! I already know it's going to be a great talk. And at Cape Canaveral, too. How cool is THAT?
David D. Levinedavidlevine on March 31st, 2010 10:50 pm (UTC)
If everything goes as scheduled (not guaranteed by any means, but we can hope) we'll even get to see a Space Shuttle launch.
Ulrikaakirlu on April 1st, 2010 11:11 pm (UTC)
You lucky dog, or so we can hope.

Oh, that is so cool! Congratulations! What fun! (Hoping there'll be a Youtube video of this one, too)

Wow. Squee, indeed!

This is full of awesomeness, but alas I will not be at the Nebs. Too many conflicts this year. Sigh.
Luke McGuffholyoutlaw on April 1st, 2010 01:39 am (UTC)
Cakes can have too much frosting, but a post like this can't have too many congratulations. So:


(All that and a shuttle launch! Yeah!)

Very cool!!!!

Does that mean Vonda gets to see it twice?
David D. Levinedavidlevine on April 1st, 2010 06:26 am (UTC)
I assume anyone who's already seen it will take the opportunity to visit the rest room :-)
Tom: libertyvoidampersand on April 1st, 2010 06:44 am (UTC)
Hey, it's a great talk.

See you there!
kzmillerkzmiller on April 2nd, 2010 04:17 am (UTC)
Woo hoo! (Reading this late or I would have woo hooed at Jay's reading.) Ditto the comment about getting some YouTube-able stuff so I can see!
Kijkijjohnson on April 9th, 2010 02:48 am (UTC)
Congratulations! I'll see you there.
