Windycon Schedule Tweak and Friday LEGO
• Looking at my schedule for this weekend more closely, I’m doing the writing workshop at the same time as the DAW vs. Baen panel, so unless we have last-minute dropouts from the workshop, it looks like I’ll be missing that panel. I’m sad about this, because it had the potential to be … well, lively, if nothing else.
• Since I am doing the “What Kids are Reading” panel on Sunday, I thought I’d open things up to suggestions. What do you think are the must-read kid titles of 2009? I’ve got some ideas, but there’s always room for more. (I may compile a full list of suggested books after the panel and post that next week, if folks would be interested?)
• My annual domestic violence book drive will be starting next week. Details to come.
• Finally, dear NASA — please build this. (Only, you know, out of genuine spaceworthy materials instead of LEGO.) This is the Carl Sagan, a mindblowing collaborative project between Lego Monster and Mad Physicist. It even has its own shuttles! One picture does not do this sucker justice.
