11:21 AM Panel:  Scalzi Rule: Questions? Comments?

[livejournal.com profile] wild_irises  opened up the room for discussion explaining that what has come to be called the Scalzi rule is that audiences should ask questions only, and not make comments.

Everyone in the room wants to comment.  [livejournal.com profile] badgerbag appears to be liveblogging also, and I suggest you check her LJ for a post.

Debbie: "Any problem can be solved given a large enough plastic bag"  Tom Stoppard.

Someone is suggesting that the rule is an extension of internet space into convention space.  An interesting notion.

Still in the Scalzi rule panel:

[livejournal.com profile] light_of_summer  made the suggestion for a rule that if someone begins grandstanding in a panel that if three other audience members stand up it means that person must sit down. 

But, as [livejournal.com profile] irontongue points out, this could lead to conspiracies to shut certain people up.

7:45 PM:  15 minutes to the start of the auction.  Gee, I hope one or more of the auctioneers arrive soon.

In the "Invocation Against Entrophy" Chiasstic Farrago performance.  It is nice to hear poetry read really well.

I am nervous, but I think we are ready.
