The people who made it happen deserve congratulations. In particular steverogerson and watervole and sugoll who are the backbone of the convention committee. Humbling, really, to see how much they did. Please note that the Redemption committee will be running Orbital 2008 (Eastercon). I can honestly recommend it to everyone on my f-list, sign up and you won't be disappointed. I can't stress this enough, and I really hope you are there.
A lot of my livejournal friends were at Redemption, and that was what made the weekend so wonderful. In addition, I am starting to recognise many of the other faces at Redemptions through the years, and I assume for better or worse they are starting to recognise me ('that loud mouth one') and give me a friendly vibe back.
I'll post about the monologues and the panels in a bit.
