Arisia 2007

I had a good time at Arisia, though at times I felt a bit overwhelmed by the crowds of people--the hotel was a little too small, and didn't have enough ways to get from floor to floor, a small problem when the dealers' room was on the 14th floor. I managed to spend money anyway, on a few books, some presents for other people, and getting henna flowers painted on the back of my left hand.

I applaud the efficiency of the Program staff; the only thing I wish they'd done that they didn't was to make sure every panel had a moderator clearly marked. On both of mine with no listed moderator, someone stepped in (me, in one case), but that means the panel is less well-thought-out ahead of time. Assigning someone, anyone, is better than assigning no one.

Overall, the con had a relaxed, fun tone and everyone I saw was good-natured about the various hotel problems that occurred. I was, too.
