  1. Kind of a pity the release is nowhere to be found on Dublin 2019’s website, or apparently dead Twitter.

    But after all, who needs other channels when we have File770?

    People aren’t going to be visiting the website or Twitter account of a Worldcon that happened 2 years ago.

    This has been promoted on places where the people most likely to be interested will be reading: the SMOFs list and the SMOFcon list, the Twitter for SMOFcon Europe, and the Facebook pages for SMOFcon Europe, JOFs, and Dublin 2019.
