Scrambling Together on my End

ArmadilloCon starts tomorrow, so I'm under the hammer getting myself ready.  So, since my brain is already approaching a tapioca-like state, here are some of the other panels which I think might be fun to attend, not including readings.  More coherent blog posts next week.
