    Here are a few shots of the WSFS business meeting.

    WSFS stands for the World Science Fiction Society and is concerned with the WSFS constitution and the rules pertaining to the administration of the Hugo awards.

    I have no idea, but it is a nice exhibition of technology in action.

    It certainly is.
    Somehow it reminds me of "Big Bang Theory". In one of the episodes Sheldon built a device that looked similar.

    I'll probably have to ship some of my "goodies" home to save weight in my carry on luggage allowance.

    -

    Well, you'll be a LOT closer to home! :)

    I've been to Kansas City just once (a medical meeting years ago) - famous for early jazz in the 1930s, e.g. Count Basie, Lester Young, Charlie Parker, and many others - a friend & I went to a 'blues club' one night - Dave :)
