Balticon...

Okay. Now I've somewhat recovered, Balticon was concentrated awesome. Highlights:

"We need to perform the ritual of sniffing each other's business cards" - Don Sakers.

Allen Steele talking about a scale vacuum chamber test of a microwave beam drive. It worked!

Both the diversity panel on Friday night and the good writing panel (Monday morning, but surprisingly well attended) were excellent and a lot of fun.

Joe Haldeman pretending to be an archaeologist from the future who dug up items from now. By the way, and I say this in the nicest possible way: Haldeman, you are a dirty old man ;).

A hilarious game of Literary Never Have I Ever. Which has been recorded... internet, watch out.

Here's to hoping I can go back for even more awesome next year.
