Fans have launched a project to celebrate the 50 years of fanhistory since the first Australian National Science Fiction Convention was held at Sydney in 1952. The Natcon 50 Project committee plans to publish a commemorative book and now they’re actively seeking out the raw material — photos, stories, programs, scanned images, or links to stuff already posted online. They’ve opened an impressive variety of technological portals to make it easy to send things to them:
You can share your Natcon mementos with us in whatever way is most convenient. If you have a Flickr account, upload photos and scanned images (or find stuff you’ve already uploaded) then tag them with “Natcon50? to add them to the pool. Or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact us through our Facebook page. Keep up to date with how the project is going by following our RSS feed or follow Natcon50 on Twitter.
There’s just one thing I didn’t see – an address for sending them dead tree fanac. Did I miss it? Either way, that would be easy to fix. And I suspect some of the vintage fans who own the old, old material they need will relate more easily to making paper copies.
