I had a wonderful convention.
The one thing I spent a significant amount of time stressing about, the hotel didn't charge us for after all, so it was okay. There were other things I might have stressed about had I known about them, but I didn't find out about them until after the fact and for the most part that was because my staff handled them beautifully.
On a couple significant (but not con-ruining) issues, nothing was done about them when something could have been done. Note for next year: emphasize that if my department heads and subheads have something they are unhappy about, they should let me know about it ASAP.
There are lots of other notes for next year, but I'm doing my major brain dump in private.
having a cell phone is pretty fun. Bill just got one a couple hours ago. his takes pictures.
okay, my sentences are getting choppy. time to go to bed.
Thanks to all of you who came and helped make my first year chairing a con such a wonderful experience!
