2. Joel Polowin
Duration: 1:30 hrs:min

Huh. Well, I told Judith I'd be willing to do something like a half-hour concert; this gives me about 3/4 hour. I've got a couple of new songs. I can go through my collection. Any suggestions or requests?

Title:  Make a Pig-Puppet

Language: English
Track: Kids Programming

Huh. Well, I've done a sock puppet before. I've done other puppety things, one of which I'll be bringing to the "Making Light" party immediately after this panel session. It does seem a rather odd thread to hang a panel from.

But... Kids programming. That's kind of a surprise. Well, I'll try not to scare them if they don't scare me.
When: Sat 20:30
Location:  D-Versailles

All Participants: Joel Polowin
Moderator: Yourself
Description: Be a filker of the night. All welcome.
Duration: 4:00 hrs:min
Language: English

Moderating an open filk session. That doesn't seem too bad. Unless the "all paricipants" really does turn out to be just me; that would be bad.

Title:  Realism in Science Fiction

Session ID: 547
All Participants: Chris Howard, kyle cassidy, Pascale Raud, Fernandes, Joel Polowin, Tobias Buckell
Moderator: Pascale Raud
Description: A lot of near-future SF novels duck the problems we read about in the news - climate change or energy shortage - in favour of problems which look more solveable. We all know that SF shouldn't be pure prediction, but how much of a duty does it have to be based on realistic assumptions?
Duration: 1:00 hrs:min
Language: English

Uh. I question some of the premises of the question.
When: Mon 12:00
Location:  P-519

Description: A discussion of multiple approaches to songwriting.
Duration: 1:00 hrs:min
Language: English
Track: Filk

Multiple approaches, right. It's not like I have a well-defined process. But it should be interesting.
