I'm on the programming committee for the LA WorldCon, later this year. The programming chair, bless his little heart, is a media fan as well as a lit fan, so no worries there. In fact, he's already gotten a producer of one well-known SF show to agree to appear (can't say who yet). Other media panels that have been suggested involve BSG, Lost, and Star Trek (40th anniversary).
He's interested in having some sort of Firefly/Serenity panel, as long as it is something more interesting than just 'Come Hear Fans Talk About Firefly.' Something along the lines of the Firefly panel I moderated at LosCon last year - 'Why Didn't Fans Get Firefly the First Time Around?' would be great because it sparks interesting discussion.
Now I'm good with pitching that LosCon panel to him again, as I think it will be interesting to do it with a much larger fan base. But I'd love some other suggestions from you guys as to what sort of really interesting Firefly panel you might be interested in attending. Something more than just 'My fave ep is < FITB >' or 'I think Jayne is hot because < FITB >.'
I know we've had some fab meta-discussions here, so help me out! This con is the Big One for the general fannish community, so I want to spread the Firefly love just a bit further.
Oh and BTW, I will post further guest info as it becomes available to the general public, as well as membership info.
