This year I have been fortunate enough to be invited as a panelist to Balticon 45.  This is my first time being a panelist at a con, and I’m really looking forward to it. I also want to make sure I do my fair share of making the con an entertaining and enlightening experience for everyone (so they’ll invite me back…). I’ve submitted a number of ideas for Panels that I might be able to participate in, or even lead.

But as I’ve remarked elsewhere, sometimes an author (or podcaster) is too close to his own materiel to be able to see what others find interesting… So I’m asking you. If you’re reading this, you’re following one of my projects, either my tech blog, The Nifty Tech Blog, or my podcast, The Shrinking Man Project, or maybe you like some of the short stories I’ve written for Every Photo Tells…, or perhaps heard my appearances on Galley Table. At the very least, you’re someone who is aware of me and some of the things I’ve done.

So I’m asking you to pitch me ideas. Given my background with tech, social media, podcasting, story-telling, writing, and such, what kind of panels would you be interested in seeing me in participating? If you’re going to Balticon 45 (even if it is only in your imagination), what would you like to see me doing, or hear me talking about as part of a panel?

Feel free to comment at whatever length. I want to hear what you’ve got in mind.
