I'm off to Balticon again this year. I was thrilled to be one of the Guests of Honor two years ago and had an amazing time. This year, some other hack was named GOH, but Sheila Dee and I decided we'd make the cross-country trek to hang out with some of our fun new media friends.

Here's what slave-driver and organizer Paul Fischer has me doing:

  • Five Reasons Your New Media Project Sucks - Fri@ 5pm
    Sheila Dee and I will try and not piss off everyone. Guess my 5 Sucky Things presentations are growing!
  • Evo @ 11 Live! - Fri @ 11pm
    P.G. will be pulling double-duty, giving his recap and playing the role of Debbie. Bill DeSmedt will be our guest. Phil Rossi has been banned.
  • Live: Escape Pod - Sat @ 10am
    Sheila and I in stereo as the farm in Rogue Farm by Charles Stross. That should be a hoot.
  • Writing for Blogs - Sat @ 5pm
    I blog. Therefore, I qualify.
  • Podiobooks: A Novel Way To Listen - Sun @ 5pm
    Exposing new listeners to the serialized audiobook format. You'd be surprised how many don't know about it.
  • Creating a Serialized Audiobook - Mon @ 11am
    For authors who want to play in this new media field.
  • New Media Triage - Mon @ 12 noon
    I'll be triageing (is that a verb) known curmudgeon Dave Slusher. Gonna be tough and fun!

Balticon is a SF/F convention with a great new media track. It takes place on Memorial Day weekend, May 22-25 2009 at Marriott's Hunt Valley Inn in Baltimore, MD. If you're in the area, you'll wanna come by. Seriously. 'Tis fun!

I'm excited about all of these!
