The Orlando in 2015 Worldcon bid committee has posted the Orlando Manifesto, a wide-ranging philosophical discussion of how to run the con and how to grow the community that supports it.
Something I noticed right off the bat is that, like James at Big Dumb Object, the Orlando committee isn’t impressed by the record-setting number of Hugo nominating votes:
About 1000 individuals vote for the awards these days, while Facebook fan communities often have tens of thousands of members. New fandom simply does not credit, nor have any interest in, an activity that draws such a relatively small number of people.
Unlike James, they are trying to woo voters within the Worldcon community. This kind of shaming rhetoric hardly seems designed to accomplish that goal.
