When I was at Wiscon 42 I took over 13,000 words of notes. That is not a typo. Thirteen thousand. And since I took so many notes, I thought I would write up the panels I attended as well as the four panels I was actually on. Let's go!

I was a panelist on:

Sorry about the huge delay and long break in getting these out! In June I lost my job, then had surgery, spent July job hunting, and somewhere in there started a company to make a fully customizable reading tracking app named Liberry. I have a job again now, and can get back to work here at Lady Business! Woo!

This was one of the panels where I kept track of speakers, but unless something is in quotation marks everything here is paraphrased/summarized. When I attribute lines to the audience, they may be combinations of different speakers — I didn't keep explicit notes on that aspect. All errors and misrepresentations are my own. My own thoughts on the panel and the movie are at the end, past the transcript.

The panel description lists the panelists as Tananarive Due (moderator), Chesya Burke, Alex Jennings, and Sheree Renée Thomas; however, Sheree Renée Thomas did not make it.

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
