    The audience is slowly entering the auditorium to watch the Hugo Award ceremony.

    In 1984 I went to the first digicon in Vancouver. There were hardly any people attending, just a smattering! But up on stage was George Lucas and co computer graphics guys! It was amazing to me! I had just finished 2 courses in computer graphics programming and design! I was SO psyched !!! A month later I broke my back:(.
    Oh well, my dream of laying down and using a computer has finally come true!:) You must be having a WONDERFUL time scifan, I'm not envious but it brought back a great memory!! Thank you for including us!:):)
