If you signed up for programming but haven't got your assignments, maybe look in the spam: that's where gmail put mine.

I only got freelance moderator assignments, three topics I am qualified to moderate by virtue of having no opinions. I don't tweet! I have seen no wuxia! Also no mecha, not even Pacific Rim!

If you didn't sign up for programming, or did, but could do another, check the list of panels that still need panelists here: http://wiscon.piglet.org/program/volunteer
You'll notice two of my three panels on that list.

I am contemplating volunteering for
Sex Education for Kids: Consent Mechanics
It can be hard to know exactly when talk to your kids about sex and what to say. Let's talk about what we've tried, how well it worked, and what lessons we've learned in the process. The Positive Consent model is different from how things were taught thirty years ago; how can we learn to model and teach it outside the 'birds-and-bees' lecture?

or
Social Isolation and WisCon
For many of us, WisCon can be a magical bastion of cluefulness in an expanse of oppression. Yet even at the best WisCon, we can have internalized phobias, impostor syndrome and geek self-loathing. And when we're not here, we may not have access to the social support we need. How do we support ourselves when the world doesn't do it for us?

which are topics on which I have things to say, but I may not have energy for more than three.

Pacific Rim! It's so absurd and beautiful and great! You totally have time to watch it, and I think you'd enjoy it.

I wish I knew if I could come to Wiscon this year. If I get the fellowship I applied for, I think I can work it out, but otherwise not. (Which means trying to get someone else to run the clothing swap, argh.)

Yay! for volunteer moderators! You will bring shiny info, snazzy ideas, and organized conversation to hundreds of members! Your ability to tease out the dynamics of human interaction will serve us all well.

I know that you would make wonderful contributions to the Consent Mechanics panel; you have copious relevant experience, and once you've climbed the battlements, you're adept at conveying your interesting thoughts. Gee, I guess all those things are also true of the other panel.

If it was my first time on a WisCon panel, I think I'd be more relaxed about doing the second panel and disclosing my nervousness. But then I'm a constitutional motormouth.

I can replace you as a moderator, and I dearly need people on those panels.
