I Need Your Creativity (or OSFest 3 Programming part 2)

We are planning a few panels at OSFest this summer that will require input.

"What If?" is designed to investigate various scenarios that will challenge the creativity and imagination of the panelists. Assorted "What-If" scenarios will be collected in a hat and drawn by the moderator. The panelists will that have to imagine the consequences of what would happen, determine the results and flesh out the events that lead up to their result. This is where I need your help. I would like suggestions on scenarios they could use. Things like: What if Dresden moved to Omaha? What if the Tardis materialized on Babylon 5 or 4? What if the Apollo program had not been cancelled? If you have any ideas, I would love to hear them. Email me at or and let's get them included.

What's your favorite starship? In "Starship Matchup" we will be pitting various war birds and battle cruisers against each other to see how they would stack up in a fight. Can the Enterprise under the command of James T. Kirk withstand the might of a Super Star Destroyer? Can the Serenity go toe-to-toe with Minbari Sharlin Class Warcruiser? Use the above email addresses to send us your favorite vessel and what ever stats you can find regarding their abilities and see who has the best ship in their fleet.

We will also have several trivia/game shows this year. Matt McKeever will be bringing the Match Game to fannish life. Dylan Nigh will be running a session of Ninja Assassination, along with Fanboy Feud and Password with Joe Carver.

There will be over a hundred activities this year at OSFest, over the next few weeks I hope to offer you a sample of many of them.
