Futures, Options, and Swaps (the weblog of Alan DeNiro)

Sequence-these really discrete packets of “posts”, like trading posts along a trail-doesn’t really work as a paradigm when you want to say 50 things at once.

But real life is not an abacus.

It was our 10th Wiscon (!) and it was great as usual. Very mellow for me, except for the karaoke party, of course, which was a ton of fun admist all the planning chaos-

-this movie on IFC now? Kontroll? Very strange. A rave, inside a subway station?-

and well worth the effort. I didn’t do any paneling or readings. I observed and was a participant and that was all good. That will undoubtedly change next year.

Was surprised how many people thought I had still stopped blogging-

no, that was a mere 24 hour certainty!

-which made me a bit sad, because I do need to spruce up this place, a lot, I had tried to upgrade to the latest version of WordPress but no dice…

The dog is using my elbow as a pillow. Nothing wrong with that.

I need to go to bed; I’m still not entirely caught up on sleep from the New Mexico trip, I think. More soon, very soon…
