Returned from Contata

gnomi and I returned from the Contata filk convention late last night. It's going to take me a while to catch up with everything here.

We primarily hung out in the Con Suite helping out sdelmonte and batyatoon, who were running the place. We did make it to three events: a panel by osewalrus on the Grokster case, the banquet, and osewalrus's concert. I found out on Friday that since he was Toastmaster and couldn't introduce his own concert, I was being drafted to do so. So in some minor way, I ended up on program after all...

More later.
