This was well-written. I think the culture overlap between tech conferences and SF cons is really interesting.

uh huh, no
I've been going to Wiscon since #1. The last few years, there has been a serious chilling of the atmosphere, with a marked increase in what looks to me like self-righteous narcissism and echo-chamber self-congratulation.
After several other contentious issues and events in fandom, I try not to get too close to these things, but after the guy got banned, fired from his job, and re-banned worse, I politely asked where the actual indictment was, so I could read for myself what his alleged behavior was. I was told it's a secret, and it was inappropriate of me to ask.
