Hey, it's a convention!

The SFRA meeting is not exactly a standard SF convention, being more academic and having no consuite (if there are parties, I'm not in the loop to know about them), yet it has a similar feeling of community and I am enjoying it. The bar was a decent gathering place post the formal program last night though I am sick to death of the notion that bars must have multiple TVs playing various sports all the time. A few of us snuck into the quieter closed restaurant part to discuss our panel coming up today and after a short discussion the waiter let us get away with that, which was nice.

I am participating in a roundtable on science fiction archiving this afternoon, representing the Science Fiction Oral History Association. Right now I'm at a panel on awards and the value of them. Very interesting.

Side note: Lawrence, Kansas: very pretty town. I wish I had more time to explore it.

My travels yesterday were uneventful. It's been a long time since I most recently traveled on Southwest Airlines, and I find I'm still fond of their efficiency. Hopefully tomorrow's travel is a similar experience.
