Programming suggestions are now open for FOGCon! Suggest programming items here.

(For those of you who don't know, FOGCon is a new literary speculative fiction convention in San Francisco, to be held March 11-13, 2011.) This year's theme for FOGCon is The City.

Wooo!

(ETA: Brainstorming in the comments)

Can we brainstorm here?

I've heard, informally, that they're interested in transformative fandom content, but that some parts of FOGCon are uncomfortable with it. So someone was saying it would be good to try and suggest things that are more meta-ish and less like "how to rip DVDs to make vids" or whatever. (Yeah, like anyone actually does panels like that anyway.)

When they say "media fandom" do they mean things that are on TV/movies, or do they mean "transformative fandom" or whatever the sparkly pony/pretty princess thing is?

Because if media fandom = transformative fandom then "talk about transformative fandom as it applies to book fandom" is ummm.

I would also argue that fanfic-centric fandom *is* literary fandom -- what are we doing if not writing and reading?

Replying to self... so turning that into a brainstorming thingy, what about something like "turning media fandom literary -- how fanfic can improve tv and movies" or something?
