My Penguicon Schedule
Penguicon is just two weeks from tomorrow and a preliminary Schedule is up for your viewing pleasure. I will be on four items this year, and am especially pleased to say I'll be presenting about my professional work; this will be the first time I've done that at an sf convention, though the Odyssey Panel on Alien Invasions did at least draw on my work experience. :)

I will probably be doing a practice run of the Understanding Cognitive Work presentation in Ann Arbor sometime before the con so if you're interested in coming to the practice and giving me feedback, please let me know. Hope people will have enough energy Sunday afternoon at the con to come see me there as well.


Where to find me at Penguicon (may yet be subject to change):

Writing the Other
Anne KG Murphy, Sarah Monette, Jim C. Hines, Steve Piziks
May 1, 2010 1:00 pm Ballroom G

The Other plays a crucial, if unenviable, role in society. How do authors explore the Other using fiction?


The Emergence of the Female Superhero
Anne KG Murphy, Catherine Shaffer, Doselle Young, Jim C. Hines, Stewart Sternberg
May 1, 2010 4:00 pm Ballroom G

From Chicks in Chainmail to Buffy to Anita Blake, women are kicking ass, taking names, and finally getting the attention they deserve.


The Death and Life of Journalism vs. The Blog
The Ferrett, Anne KG Murphy, Ferrel Moore
May 2, 2010 10:00 am Private Dining II

These days it seems that everyone with a computer and something to say has a blog. Have blogs supplanted traditional journalism? Should they? In a world full of opinions, is there any room for fact-based reporting?


Understanding Cognitive Work as a Human Factors Engineer
Anne KG Murphy
May 2, 2010 2:00 pm Private Dining I

Anne talks about her work with cognitive task analysis, which means finding out how people do whatever it is they do. Domains include intelligence analysis, diplomatic training for soldiers, operating unmanned robotic systems (ground and air robots), naval undersea warfare command and control, and small unit dismounted operations in urban terrain.

Are you a late addition to the Writing the Other panel? I didn't realize you were going to be on that one with us.

Also, I'm *very* happy that you're going to be on that one with us :-)

See you in two weeks!
