I’m running around for the next several days, so blogging will be sparse here. Tweeting may be up, however, if the con doesn’t overwhelm the local cell towers. If you want to find me, here is where I’m committed to be (full con schedule here).
Thursday through Saturday evenings:
I will be in the FtB party room, which is connected to the Skepchick party room. There will be booze for a modest fee (to pay for the party space). There will be buttons. There will be FtBers and Skepchicks and friends of both. There will be balconies with excellent vantages on the Jesi boffing. There will be great room designs by our friend Mel.
Growing Up Online
Each new generation is more electronically connected than the last. How does this broaden or narrow our world views? What does it do to our online interactions? How do we help our kids navigate this environment? Panelists: Jason Thibeault, Scott White, Stephanie Zvan, Barbara Burke, Anne Sauer, Ashley Hamer, Heina Dadabhoy
Don’t Feed the Trolls
Sexism, misogyny & the internet. A discussion about the recent wave of internet bullying against women and what we can do about it. Panelists: Heina Dadabhoy, Greg Laden, Stephanie Zvan, Jason Thibeault, Rebecca Watson
Vive le Difference
Boys like trucks, girls like dolls. Or do they? What are the real differences between men and women (other than the obvious physical ones)? How much is cultural, how much is a consequence of real biological differences? Panelists: Stephanie Zvan, Craig A. Finseth, Greg Laden, Rebecca Watson, Heina Dadabhoy
If you’re at the con, please come say, “Hi!”
