Another FOGcon has come and gone! I had an absolutely fantastic time, and lots of other people seemed to have a great time. Seanan McGuire and Tim Powers were both wonderful guests: they were funny and insightful as panelists, and really friendly and approachable outside of programming. I feel very happy about the way this convention went - we have plenty of things that we can improve on for next year, but I was particularly pleased by the number of people who commented that they found the convention very friendly and welcoming. If we don't get that right, it doesn't much matter if we get other things right.
In case you haven't seen it, we're already able to announce our theme and honored guests for next year. The theme of FOGcon 5 will be "The Traveler", and Kim Stanley Robinson and Catherynne Valente. And we're already collecting programming ideas for next year. If you have something you'd like to see on programming, suggest it here: http://db.fogcon.org/idea
