Readercon Update

Veronica Schanoes, the woman who was harassed at the con in 2008, has posted a petition over in her LiveJournal calling for the permanent banning of Rene Walling from Readercon and the removal of the Readercon board of directors. I've signed it (waves to Knut, too). If you've a mind to, feel free to head over and add your name.

According to this post by a member of the con program committee:

A Board member has resigned, and another intends to do so. I don't know if they're dissenting voices, or committing sepuku.

Meanwhile, the board has tweeted:

We greatly appreciate the feedback we've received on the board's recent decision. The convention committee is working on a response.

Sure you are.
