Preliminary Program Grid for Thomas McCabe
This is the Preliminary program schedule. Thomas McCabe may or may not actually be on these items, but probably will. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, modifications to the program can occur throughout the convention.
|Friday 6:00 pm: The Logistics of Space Warfare (Ends at: 6:55 pm) Salon A|
Panelists:Roger MacBride Allen, Thomas McCabe (M), Ian Randal Strock
"Amateurs study strategy, professionals study logistics." What sort of support structure is likely to be needed for warfare in space? How can this be used to build an interesting story, rather than just boring the reader with detail or setting up a situation where all the outcomes are trivial?
|Saturday 4:00 pm: Future Technologies (Ends at: 4:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac|
Panelists:Charles E. Gannon, Inge Heyer (M), Thomas McCabe
What future technology might exist? How do writers predict what types of machines will exist in 50 or 1000 years? Is far future technology or nanotech simply magic in disguise? What writers do you think do the best job with future technology?
|Saturday 5:00 pm: Building A Spacefaring Civilization (Ends at: 5:55 pm) Rockville/ Potomac|
Panelists:John Ashmead, Thomas McCabe (M), Mike McPhail, Gary L. Oleson
What can the human race do in the near term to expand beyond Earth and into interplanetary space? What sort of advances in science and technology are needed? What kind of cultural and governance shifts can we expect as we become a spacefaring civilization?
