Well, it's snowing outside, but the con is still in full swing. My two panels were well attended. The first one was with the fabulous Sara A. Harvey, Keith R. A. DeCandido, James D. Macdonald, and Inanna Arthen. Where we covered bad contracts, the unfortunate experiences of Sara and Inanna, James's work with Writers Beware and some of the practices Keith obsereved at a former employer. While the range of things that can go wrong with a contract, or the relationship with an agent, or publisher is a seriuos topic, this was a fun panel. I haven't had as much fun, complete with laughs, swearing, anecdotes and one upsmanship.

Next panel was on bio ethics. This panel had people with varied backgrounds and when it got rolling we discussed a variety of topics from autonomy to informed consent, all of which feed into the ethics equation. Thomas Easton (m), Bonnie Barlow Turner, Amy Chused, Richard Stallman, myself and one other person who's name was not on the schedule were delighted to have a full audience.

I'm off to see if i can swing lunch or at least a drink with one of my clients.
