Pinboard guy

I told someone at BP I would link them to the talk that Maciej Cegłowski (creator/owner of Pinboard) gave about his interactions with fandom, but for the life of me I can't remember who I was talking to. :(

Anyway, here is the talk he gave (2013), here's a blog entry he wrote not long after fandom first started migrating to Pinboard (2011).

I know there was a follow-up post to the 2013 talk, because he apologized for making the assumption that fandom was mostly comprised of heterosexual women, but I can't seem to find the post. *shrug*

Enjoy.

BP 2014 ~missed connections~

We have seen several people mention having talked to people at BP but not knowing where to find them online, so me_maneuver suggested that a post might be in order! Feel free to comment here with your various platform identities, and/or any salient details (e.g., "You: the person talking in the poly panel about the joys of pegging; Me: the person who brought up rimming as a corollary" etc.).
David Cook is a crying motherfucker <3

HELLO FRIENDS. All my bonus fangirls are gone, and it is raining, and I am sad. So this seems like the perfect time to reflect on all the lovely people who helped make BP 2014 possible. Thanks to:

- me_maneuver for fabulous panel coordination, heroic craft-table organization, and for being so generous in her willingness to help with anything I needed

- All of our brave and brilliant moderators for spearheading such thoughtful, enthusiastic, and delightful discussions

- fiercynn and glass_moment for a thoroughly fantastic vidshow

- troyswann for a truly bitchin' dance mix

- china_shop for her brilliant, evil Pictionary clues

- All of our fabulous registration table workers

- catwalksalone, for helping put together badges and registration packets

- My wonderful roommates catwalksalone, loneraven, and troyswann, for providing caffeine, decongestants, decisiveness, car Tetris strategies, patience, rum, and snuggles as required

- belmanoir, dugrival, me_maneuver, sadiane, and sdwolfpup, for schlepping and problem-solving and consultation services and just generally being there to do whatever needed to be done, as well as anyone else who helped or offered to help

And thanks, last but not least, to ALL OF YOU, BPeeps (oh man how has it taken me seven years to come up with that?!) of 2014. Thank you for your FEELINGS and shiny brains and talents and enthusiasm, for making your own fun despite technical difficulties (sorry about that /o\), for working up the courage to talk to people you didn't know, for spending the weekend in a pile of people you loved already, for opening your minds to the scientific complexities of a SHARKNADO, for carrying the banner. Thank you for showing up and jumping in and making me feel good about the world, and especially about our corner of it. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Podfic Resource Kit!

Hey people who came to the Podfic How-To panel! Or didn't but might still be interested in making podfic!

Here is the link to the super special awesome resource googledoc that exmanhater, rhea314 and I cooked up to hand out to folks. It includes general podfic tutorials, software-specific guides, tips on noise removal and hosting, and even walkthroughs for making podfic cover art, if that's an area of interest for you!

If anybody knows of tutorials or tips posts we might have left off, please feel free to edit the doc to add them in!

Seattle fannish dinner parties

I've met something like 7 or 8 people this weekend who said they were local to the Seattle area but weren't aware of the fannish dinner parties we do once a month or so. I have been very bad at keeping track of who these people are, so in case I forget someone: if you're interested, comment or PM me your e-mail address and I'll invite you to join the mailing list.

ETA: It doesn't matter if you're one of the people I actually talked to about this--if you want in, you're welcome regardless of whether I've ever met you!

Game of Thrones Viewing Party

If anyone is interested in watching the new Game of Thrones tonight, I'll be watching the new episode tonight in room 305 at 9pm. If you're caught up (let me know if you need to see the season four premiere as it's on my computer), I HIGHLY recommend watching the episode as it's going to be a great one. Afterwards we can talk about the episode, Game of Thrones in general and SQUEE :)
