Recordings from the convention will be posted soon.
It was proposed that we hold our next meeting (March 11, see calendar) as a teleconference, to general acclamation. All are welcome, please contact Chad if you would like to participate. Our current plan is to use Skype in audio-only mode.
Discussed the need for better volunteer interviewer and internal desk procedures once we receive recordings. Rick will post a proposed acquisition workflow for review, and begin processing our backlog into the catalog.
One of our members, Larry Tucker, had a stroke in July, but attended ConFusion for a short while Saturday. Larry’s mother, Nancy Tucker Shaw, was SFOHA president for many years, and under his “Uncle Albert” persona, he did audio and video fanzines and at least one movie, “FAANS”, recorded at an early ConFusion, starring Howard DeVore as JoPhan, Roger Sims as the House Detective, Mike Glicksohn as a poker player, Ro Nagey as a juggling maniac, Jean Barnard on a balcony… we are speaking with the friends who are taking care of Larry’s things, but they are afraid he didn’t save any oral history recordings/videos. Larry told me a few years ago that he had lost all his original copies of FAANS… and all we have are a couple 4th generation or worse VHS tapes. If anyone has any of Larry’s work, please contact us!
Attending the at-con SFOHA meeting Sunday: Rick Jackson, Stephen Lucchetti, Chad Childers, Mike Gardiner, Joel Zakem, and Clark Wierda.

What are the issues of yesteryear in Science Fiction that seemed important at the time but now seem passe?
(Joel Zakem, Mike Resnick, Rick Jackson, Michael ‘FREON’ Andaluz, and Larry Tucker)
Will the future spin out of control? Will we reach a point of such rapid technological progress that our limited biological brains cannot comprehend it? Vernor Vinge and Ray Kurzweill defined this concept, and we’re going to to talk about the subject.

Shane came through with some more video from the 2010 WorldCon (AussieCon 4). Here’s an excerpt from his blog, Shane on the Go.
After the kaffeeklatsch, I just like saying kaffeeklatsch, it was time for my penultimate panel. I chose Novellas: The Perfect Format mainly because Grand Master and living legend Robert Silverberg was on the panel. Also on the panel were Peter M. Ball, Alan Baxter and Keith Stevenson.
Thanks again to Shane for posting these videos. He has more insight and photos on his blog.

It’s not often we get to hear Jack Vance talking, and with none other than Frederik Pohl. They both just won Hugos along with StarShip Sofa’s host Tony Smith. Thanks to Tony for bringing these two great talents together.
