Worldcons of the future

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.

  1. Chicago, or Denver would be very doable for me.
    The overseas ones…far less so (except maybe Montreal)

  2. Japan? Reeeealy….
    I checked the site, but there’s no info for it. Do you know which city?

  3. More cons I won’t be going to… I’m going to be lucky to get to LA con. Aaaaargh. [feeling pathetic]

  4. Where in CT are you? Eric, my ex-husband (just filed the divorce papers today) just got a job offer in Hartford CT and he’s pretty sure he’ll take it. He won’t know anyone there. He only plans on being there for a year before getting a transfer within the company to some other part of the country, maybe even back to Florida. But he is a really good guy and I would love it if you could meet him and maybe introduce him to some cool people to hang out with. He’s into SCA and sci-fi and most of the same stuff I am.
