An unexpected opportunity presented itself when I was asked to speak at a local sci-fi convention, Can-Con. A friend had referred me as a potential academic speaker who could talk about augmented reality. But, since my thesis topic had taken a turn toward nonlinear narrative and interactive storytelling, and because I figured this audience would enjoy this topic, that's what I ended up speaking about instead.
I had a small but attentive and interactive audience, which made the talk not only a pleasure to give, but useful for me, too. I got quite a few good ideas and references that will help me in my thesis work. The conference seems pretty interesting in itself, so if you're interested in sci-fi, you should check out next year's edition!
