What We Talked About

The first mafia of the year. The turnout was pretty good—there were 16 persons present. As usual, there was food and drink, and conversations on various topics, including:
  • various happenings in people’s LiveJournals
  • the TSFS 30-year-anniversary at the end of the month (see next post)
  • organizing parties in general
  • how everyone came into fandom
  • politics (especially the coming presidential election)
  • the nuclear holocaust literature of the 80s
  • science fiction “predictions” and the development of personal technology
  • retroactive alternate histories
Not a bad start for a year, I think. Have a good 2006, everyone!
