putting the World in Worldcon

Much more than in Toronto and almost as much as in Glasgow, this Worldcon seemed like the international event it ought to be every year. I worked treasury where we had planned operations in CAD and USD and unplanned operations in JPY and CZK. I was expecting panels in English and French but was not expecting that the most interesting panel I'd make it to during the con would be in Japanese. The person I probably spent the most time hanging out with at con was from Belgium.

5 of the 8 Worldcons 2003-2010 will have been outside the US. This is a good trend. I'm glad to see that Japan is bidding again, and wondering who will be next.
