PSA: WorldCon with an Economist

The first item on Charlie Stross’s World Science Fiction Convention schedule:

Thursday August 6th, 5pm (Location: P-511CF)
Title: In Conversation: Paul Krugman and Charles Stross
Description: 90 minutes of Charles Stross discussing SF, economics, and other topics with Paul Krugman. [link in original]

Those who might wonder why Krugman would be an appropriate guest at Anticipation (this year’s WorldCon, being held in Montreal starting six yearsdays [h/t Loyal Reader] after we move back to NJ*) are referred to this paper [PDF], which I previously discussed at Tom’s place.

*Which is why Shira doesn’t want to do the eight panels on which she was scheduled.
