Here are some moments in time from the remote WorldCon, which I have the pleasure of attending.
When exactly 888 people were watching the Hugos livestream, during the final award winner’s speech for the Astounding Award for Best New Writer.
Upon waking from a snooze after joining the Seattle 2025 zoom room for the final hour of a party session. I wore many metallic eye-shaped tattoos by chance of having them, as I happen to have also done at WorldCon 75 in Helsinki. It’s an easy extraterrestrial look. That is a chin-eye.
The Arianespace sattelite launch from French Guiana was scrubbed today, but we did get to hold a launch watching party. This was a point during countdown while we still thought the launch was underway, at 2:22pm PST.
This is an url to a story you can read by Regina Kanyu Wang. I enjoy many elements of her style, and was able to attend both a Kaffeeklatsch, and a reading.
And I’ll just leave you with this.
Dublin WorldCon is off to an exhilarating start. I love how many different people translate in from their distributed communities to create this family that morphs from year to year and place to place, growing and staying in touch.

Look me up if you’ll be there. I’m so pleased we’ve SOUL’D OUT attendance for this event! Fine times we live in.
I’m confirmed for the program at this year’s World Science Fiction & Fantasy Convention, in Dublin, August 15-19!
That’ll be both WorldCon’s and my first time in Ireland. Happy to present for WorldCon again, having done so in Kansas City and Helsinki. This year’s roster is already amazing, and neat to be with WorldCon while breaking new ground for both of us.
