On E. Moon and Wiscon|
Wow. Your comments to that thread are awesome.
There is much to disagree with in Ms. Moon's post, but the over-reaction is staggering. "Grieving"? This is a "wake"?
I suppose it is. Other cons are celebrations. Eery time I hear about Wiscon in the blogosphere it reinforces the impression I had from attending Wiscon, that it is for grieving.
The references to grieving and it's being a wake have to do with the greater topic of Nora's post, which has to do with how WisCon is run and whether or not it is or will ever be the convention she (and others) would want it to be. I'm not sure if it ever *was* that convention, so they may be grieving the death of a dream more than of the convention itself.
