Going to Boskone

Yesterday I made my hotel reservations for Boskone 45, which is February 15 through 17 in Boston. I also signed up for a membership, but I was told today that I had already signed up for one last April. I had totally forgotten! I guess it's good that I decided to go again this year.

Once again I am surprised at the lack of a central community-building web presence for Boskone. They've got their website that they pack with information as it becomes available, but there's no forum for discussion or meeting our fellow attendees. I'd love to be able to chat with people online for a month or two ahead of time and maybe make some friends that I could then meet in person at the convention. Plus there's really no presence I can find on the various social networking websites--the LJ community (boskone) is totally unused, the NESFA community (nesfa) is extremely low-traffic, and there's no Boskone group on Facebook. Even if I tried posting stuff in the LJ community, unless all Boskone attendees are encouraged to do so it won't really accomplish what I'm looking for.

But anyway, I'm looking forward to going again this year. Give me a shout if any of you will be there!

I'll keep an eye out for you--I'm sure we'll run into each other like last year.
