Ian Watson in conversation with Ian Watson as Paul McAuley
- Audience was about 50% for each gender. (No #s, but in the 20-30 range.)

I'm glad I went. Good to see lots of people and meet lots of new ones, and the day was lovely and sunny in the indoors Fishmarket. It was gratifying to see the Iron Cupcake posters in the café.

Also, contrary to this morning's announcement, 10 10 10 10 10 is not 42 in binary; even if it is a nifty sequence of numbers.
