Actually, that's con, as in the World Science Fiction Convention, held in LA this year from August 23 - 27.

Phil Plait Phil Plait

Phil Plait writes Slate’s Bad Astronomy blog and is an astronomer, public speaker, science evangelizer, and author of Death From the Skies!  

The schedule has been posted, and if you search through it you might find a name or two that's familiar. In fact, you'll see my name, because I'll be giving two talks and sitting in on several panels (I'm autographing my book there too). I plan on having a TON of fun, because many cool folks will be there, including loads of Star Trek people (like Mike Okuda, whom I met when I toured the Enterprise set, and Rick Sternbach, who was a poster on the Bad Astronomy/Universe Today bulletin board).


A fan has actually put together an extensive set of pages laying out the schedule, which makes finding things a lot easier. Nicely done, too.

And just when I get my breath back after that con, I'm heading off to Dragon*Con in Atlanta for more fun. Firefly cast members will be there! I am in major fanboy geek heaven.

I'll have more details later on, but if any BAblogees are going, post a comment here!

And lessee, hmmm... yeah, I think that ends the Trek posts for a while.
