Progress Report #1--Programming
by Debbie Hodgkinson

At the 1997 World Science Fiction Convention we're going to offer programming about everything science fiction fans are interested in - everything that influences how the future could be, and everything that fans do to create fandom: costumes, filk, zines and conventions. Whether you are interested in art, writing, science, sociology, economics, space exploration, films, or computers, there will be topics of interest. Our goal is to make boredom impossible for five days.
As a WorldCon located on the edge of Latin America, in a city that was formerly part of Mexico, our particular interest will be how science fiction is written, used, and perceived in those countries of the Western Hemisphere south of our own. We hope to have writers, artists and editors in attendance whose mother tongues are Spanish and Portuguese, and to have discussions of science fiction in translation.
Right now what you can do to help create a better Worldcon is to keep those cards and letters coming in. If you have heard someone speak particularly eloquently on a topic you think would be of interest to the membership of the WorldCon, report that person to me. I'll do what I can to draft them. If you are the one dying to speak, let me know that, too. What are the hot topics in SF for you? What gets you excited in your own work or in the work of others? Send me your comments and suggestions.
