Post-ConQuest Report

So ConQuesT invited Ursula out as Artist GoH, and as per our usual arrangement, I went along as her Sherpa[1]. We had some slight difficulty getting there – the flight into Kansas City, MO was scrubbed and we couldn’t get a flight until Saturday – but after that, it was a fun time for everyone (we hope). We got to meet some fans, made new friends, and saw some old ones as well. We had the famous Kansas City BBQ[2], and got an inadvertent tour of KC on our way to Breakfast Monday.

Thank you to everyone who came out and saw us, you guys were awesome. We had a great time, and if ConQuesT were closer, we’d be back next year. Y’all were fantastic, and we look forward to seeing a lot of you at WorldCon[3] later this year.

Next stop : AnthroCon 2012, and I’ll be taking the Hugo voter packet[4] along because we have a LOT of reading to do before WorldCon…

[1] We used to say “assistant” and “booth bitch” but it didn’t seem to properly convey the amount of heavy lifting involved.
[2] At the original Arthur Bryant’s BBQ – best of KC, I’m told, and almost as good as NC BBQ. And we know how I feel about that.
[3] We’re still amazed that we get to go to WorldCon this year, and Ursula is VERY honored for the Hugo Nomination. We still have trouble believing it – again, thank you all!
[4] If you are registered, go get yours and vote! This year’s packet is an INCREDIBLE value, and includes the complete run of Digger as a PDF. Just remember – if you get the packet, you have to vote!

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.
