Hello - is anyone here going to be at Capricon? (Chicago, January 27-30.) The theme of the con is "Armageddon", so, what with being one of the planetary experts on the subject and all, I finally gave in and decided to try my hand at SF convention panels. Now I'm trying to gather panelists.

The panels are:
"Nanotechnological warfare: Apocalypse in real life." and
"The transhuman Singularity: The rise of greater-than-human intelligence."

If you're going to Capricon and you think you'd like to talk about either or both of humanity's available options, please contact me.
