I'm going to be at WisCon! For the first time in years!

I am on two panels:
Living Globally Through the Internet - Sat, 2:30–3:45 pm - Conference 1
With the Internet, it's become possible to live in one place while staying pretty well connected to another. How do we manage when we keep our hearts in a different place from where we hang our hats?

Let's Go Steal a Panel: Leverage and Fandom - Sat, 9:00–10:15 pm - University D
Leverage ended after 5 seasons in 2012, but the show remains popular among fandom, and its themes of found family, as well as Robin Hood-style narrative of standing up to corporate bullying and abuses of the rich & powerful, seem to be more relevant than ever as escapist fantasy. We'll talk about what Leverage did right, and also take off the rose tinted glasses to dive into what hasn't held up. If you've ever wanted to know why Leverage fans are so passionate about the show, join the panelists as they geek out over the adventures of their favorite misfit family of the Grifter, the Thief, the Hacker, the Hitter, and the Mastermind.

Looking forward to seeing folks there!
