China, Florida 

An email from Frank Wu alerts me to the odd situation that, according to website Great Firewall of China, locusmag.com is blocked in China. Frank reports that, based on his tests, other blocked sites are Wikipedia.org, sfsite.com, boingboing.net, slashdot.org, and google.com, while sites such as yahoo.com, sfwa.org, and craphound.com are not blocked. Hmm.

--Is this working now? I've been trying for an hour to post this item, as well as items for Locus Online, and been prevented by various oddball errors claimed by Blogger....

Anyway, title part #2 alludes to my plan to attend this year's International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, though due to day-job obligations, I won't be leaving LA until very early Thursday morning, missing the first day or so of the conference. But I'll be there in time for dinner Thursday.
