[conventions] Worldcon, day three

Yesterday began with my usual morning walk along the lakeside. I then met Janet Freeman-Daily for breakfast, where we mostly talked cancer. After that I was on a fairly insane panel that was round one of a five-part world building workshop.

I bounced from that straight to a photo shoot with Locus photographer Beth Gwinn. We went back to the police car graveyard, which on close inspection proved to be movie cars rather than true police cruisers. Dani Martin came along to be Beth's minion and lighting grip, and took a few photos with my iPhone.

After that, I caught lunch in the neighboring food court with Bryan Thomas Schmidt. I then hied off to a panel on moral ambiguity in SF, with a literally overflow crowd.

Nikki Deasy took me offsite for a nice dinner and some low key conversation.

The evening wound up spending some more time barconning with Sally McLennan, hitting a few parties, then wrapping it up.

P.S. — Sorry I failed to tag everyone in the photos, but I am very tight for time as I make this post.
