This weekend I'm at Shibaricon for the first time. I'm living in Chicago right now, so this may be my only chance to attend without paying for travel. I'm writing this on Sunday evening, while things are fresh on my mind. The event goes until Monday afternoon, so there's still one more night of play and a half day of classes ahead of me, but I don't expect those to significantly change what I'm going to write here.

Some of the things I've written lately have prompted people to inform me that there are rumors about me that I did not know about. I would greatly appreciate hearing those rumors. I am allowing anonymous comments on this post.

The busiest day on my calendar in the last 3 months, in terms of events I want to attend and I know at least some of my friends will be at, and that includes NYE. This prompts two questions.

First, about this specific day... Where will YOU (my loyal LJ-replying friends) be? I am torn between the following (in order of current personal preference):

Whippersnappers (the local 21-39 bdsm / fetish play group)
Frosted Fetish Ball (by
Momocon Winter Ball (a dance for anime fans in formal attire)
Blast-Off Burlesque

Second, about calendars in general... A number of you have expressed surprise over the last few months when I tell them where I plan to be on a given weekend. Locals who attend a number of club/fetish/bdsm/other events but apparently are not in the loop about all such events. I follow the secretroom, dark_atlanta, and spring4thcenter LJ groups, and am on a number of relevant yahoo groups and other mailing lists. I currently keep all my plans on a Google Calendar, which is public, but I understand that a lot of people don't use any calendaring software and don't want the "extra work" of learning to. So, I ask you all, where can I post a public calendar of such events that would be easiest for you all to see them? I don't plan to send out invitations, just keep a list. Should I just link to my Google Calendar? Move those events to a Facebook calendar of some sort (which, if not the default app?)? Track them on LJ or *shudder*MySpace in some way? Tell me what you want, that will greatly impact my ongoing calendaring decisions.

I used a graphing app to chart my facebook network (I'll probably do the same for LJ soon, just harder to mine the data).  The results show predictable patterns, but is interesting nonetheless.
