In case anyone is interested….
JAPAN won the 2007 Worldcon bidding with 935 votes to 692 for Columbus, Ohio. A two-year bid period is now in effect, so 2008 will be voted at L.A.con IV in 2006, and there will be no site selection at Glasgow next year (but both Interaction and L.A.con members can vote on 2008; one fan, one vote). Future Worldcon bids include Chicago and Denver for 2008, Kansas City and Montreal for 2009, and Australia for 2010. Washington DC is a 2011 possibility, if hotels are built near the convention centre.
