one of THOSE mornings

The programming meeting went fairly well, despite apprehension over whether the Mandarin Buffet was still there, since you can't find it in Google or Yahoo, and whether the Programming chairwoman was going to be there, since she hadn't responded to e-mail or phone messages all day. Well, the buffet was in fact still there, and she did show up - she'd been tied up in meetings all day and had just barely had time to get home, see the e-mail, and dash off to Anoka to meet up with us. We managed to fill most of the main programming spaces with a few exceptions on Friday afternoon and early Saturday morning, but there are many many gaping holes in the smaller venues. michaellee, I thought you had a major headache of a job doing programming for CONvergence, and now I KNOW your pain. Well, we have a few weeks in which to hit up people for more panel/discussion group ideas, so I think we'll be able to fill them up...or use them as auxiliary lounges, which would also be a good use of the space.

Got home around 10 pm, watched the first half of Eiken, and could not get to sleep until after midnight. Slept badly, woke late, and still feel like hammered yak dung. Tonight, a registration meeting.

Our programming head Christine, does a wonderful job in getting everything organized. We would die without her!!!!!! :)

*nods* -- and that's one of the reasons why we make it a six or seven month process for us; spreads out our pain a great deal...

That's what kills me about this...we did start six months ago, and we still have a buttload of space & time to fill. Obviously we need to cast our net a lot wider, poke more people with sticks, or something.

Absolutely - but no more from Laura, please. We have her pretty solidly booked up already from the ideas she submitted. ^__^

Not a problem. I'll see about hauling some other people on board then. And if it's true I'm really only doing the Utena panel I'll try to think up something else for me to do at one of those times as well.
