Yep, I'm going. Last year was the best one ever, so I'm taking a chance...

I'm also on one panel:

Beyond the Fix or How Do I Live this F***ing Life?
Sat, 10:00–11:15 am
Conference 5

M: R. Elena Tabachnick; Shayla D, Lenore Jean Jones, Jesse the K

When you know there's no fix, your disability's never getting better, might get worse, and acceptance is the only possibility, it's time to share (aka vent). On this panel, we'll air our pet grievances, exchange survival strategies, and discuss the challenges—both surprising and predictable—of life with disability. We'll also share stories we've used to keep going.

I'm always eager to meet first-timers, and of course I'm thrilled to see my con-pals. I'll be at the hotel & therefore available for most any occasion.

While swimming and riding endlessly on paratransit, I've come up with some loose ideas for panels, and I know you can improve them. I welcome discussion, amendations, and improvements, that won't work! if you tell me why, and any other thoughts which come to mind. If you think you could design a better suggestion around my kernels go right ahead! WisCon programming is a collective, democratic process. Programming submission ends January 26th. You don't have to be registered to play.

I've placed each possible submission in its own thread, click the titles to jump there:
Genetic memory: past and future
Five Minutes Inside My Brain
1001 Things You Don't Know About Sheherazade
Designing Ethical Oversight
The Real Faces of Medieval Europe

Well then. The deadline for programming submissions is Saturday! Saturday! Saturday as in day-after-tomorrow. I have some sketchy ideas which need fleshing out. Open up your brain and let the thoughts pour out.

Each idea has its own thread. I've got sketches — WisCon need 800-character submissions.

ETA all threads frozen, all ideas submitted, thank you very much for playing!
