IDEAS FOR FSCONS
Keynotes: The choice for keynotes should ideally be people that draw different crowds to the conference. What we have seen is that the keynotes are for many visitors one of the main reason for registering. Furthermore, they should be more or less equally interesting whichever of the three "pillars" of FSCONS (tech, culture and society) that you are into.
Instead I would like to suggest Charles Stross, noted sci-fi author. His books has been discussed at FSCONS on several occasions and he's been in the loop for a potential keynote for the last two years. He was very eager to come, but couldn't due to conflicting events. Since you made such a good start with the organising already, I'm sure that he still is bookable for next year.
