Heh, so...Frenkel's ban is permanent. And I've volunteered myself to co-chair WisCon. These two things are not related except that they both apply to WisCon & I haven't mentioned them here. I know this is a lot of work & WisCon is neck deep in some issues. But I really believe it can be great & a better space. So I’m putting my time, energy & sanity where my mouth is this year. I may live to regret this decision repeatedly, but meh. I've done stupider things.

You know, one of the things I admire about you is that while most people are going "Someone should fix things", you're going "Right, how do we fix things?"

Just remember to sleep occasionally, yeah?

You are completely nuts. :) If you ever want moral support from someone who's been there and done that, let me know.

As a former con chair, I wish you all the best. The one thing that I found useful with the lot of loons I dealt with was this: *Always* have a plan B and a plan C - backups for your backups. Understudies are execllent to have in volunteer organizations.

Best of luck.
