It’s been a very busy several months. Work deadlines, attending my fourth Lakes of Fire, the start of the Full Moon Jam season and wrestling with Mother Nature (seriously, what does a fire spinner have to do to bribe the Weather Gods for at least one rain-free fire jam??). Not to mention trying to keep up with all of the geek circle news like the SFWA controversies and the ever-present problem of how to deal with con harassment. So apologies for taking so long to get this up, but I hope you’ll find it’s worth the wait.
The entire, hour-long panel discussion and Q&A session of our C2E2 2013 panel, “Exorcising the Spectre of the Fake Geek Girl,” is included in this footage. Which looks absolutely amazing, thanks to the camera ninja skills of Michael Silberman of Great Eye Films.
If you weren’t able to attend the panel, I hope you’ll take the time to watch. This was a dynamic conversation to be a part of, and I’m immensely thankful to have taken part in this with Carlye Frank, Laura Koroski, Karlyn Meyer, Dawn Xiana Moon and Erin Tipton. And thanks again to the Chicago Nerd Social Club for all their support, and to Anne Peterson of CNSC for introducing us at the con. I hope we’ll have the chance to take this panel to future cons and continue the dialog there.
(A transcript for the video is forthcoming – I’ll try to have one up as soon as possible and will post an update when it’s available.)
