SFRevu is in the process of changing its stripes once again.
I've been putting out a monthly issue for the better part of the last three years, and it's starting to get to me. Ok, ok, it's way past starting. Our content has been getting richer every issue, and the issues keep getting longer and longer. Of course that means more and more time is needed to put them together, not to mention actually write them, and like most folks, time is the thing I'm in shortest supply of.
All this means that the issues tend to go out later and later, and instead of timely reviews, you wind up with recent retrospectives.
Interestingly, the two most useful things about web publishing are that information can be disseminated when it's very fresh...and that it can be kept available for long periods of time.
Print media, on the other hand, lags reality significantly, then disappears as it comes off the newsstand.
As I work on the re-tooling of SFRevu, I hope to make the most of both those features, coming up with a site that brings you events and reviews while it's newsworthy, and is organized to allow you to find previous information when and how you want it.
When matter and energy are compressed in the event horizon of a black hole and disappear from the universe, theory says that they will emerge somewhere else, but transformed.
The black hole looms before our sensors.
"All hands...brace for impact..."

NASFIC, the alt.Worldcon con, is held in years when Worldcon isn't held in the US.
It's like a cozy Worldcon, with folks from all over the US, but fewer of them. The con count was somewhere around 2k this year, and it was held just around the corner from Disneyland. That's in Anaheim, CA, not Florida, in case you were confused. It gave me (Ernest) an excuse to go to LA and see all that neat stuff I've already seen on Screen about a million times already. Gee...It's smaller in real life. And of LA, as has been said before...There's no "there" there.
Now that I've been out once, somehow I expect I'll be back. For the moment though, I'm glad to be back in NY.
