Done with MidFanzine 4 (on to Wellspring)
I have just posted the 4th issue of MidFanzine on the web. It features an awesome cover by Kurt Erichsen, an illo by Frank Wu, plus articles by myself, Jer Lance, Jesse the K, Val Grimm, and Laura Hamel. Many thanks to Kim Kofmel and Gary Farber for proofing. (and thanks to the two others who offered - we were covered, but I may tap you for the next one!)

MidFanzine 4 has articles on U-Con's registration process, accessibility, how to date and then deal with your hotel, running a bone marrow donor registration drive, and increasing the racial diversity of sf conventions. I welcome letters of comment to editor@midfan.org.

Comments are also welcome here, of course. :)

I am sending this on immediately to the Singularity Summit, with whom I have had phone conversations about knowledge-sharing. I predict they will be particularly interested in the hotel article. Thank you!

Excellent! Glad to hear it!

I'm really looking forward to reading to rest of the hotel series by Jer.

My big fear is that once down on "paper", everyone will see what a sham I am... I mean, everything I do is largely common sense, blind luck, and gut feel. I fully expect that anyone that reads the full series will end it with a feeling of "well, duh!"

It's fun to write so far, though. :)

I think when we get to know a subject a lot of things start to feel obvious to us that other people don't know anything about.

The other day at work someone brought up a possible area of research on email (uses of "Unmanned Vehicles", or semi-autonomous robots) that I had a lot of experience and know-how about that it occurred to me others in my group might not know. Feeling much as you do, that a lot of it was common sense, I typed out an overview and sent it around. I got really positive feedback for doing that.

So keep it up! I won't be the only one that appreciates it. :)
