I was invited to CannonCon, a comic convention in Watertown, NY. There, I gave a talk called The Social Side of Geek Culture where I compared geek fandom to social sculpture.
I also did two interactive projects at the end, a Round Robin FanFic and a Comic Battle Debate.
For the Round Robin FanFic, the members of the audience and I took turns, each writing a sentence in a piece of fan fiction. I then posted it on Comic Vine, for others to read and comment, if they like.
For the Comic Battle Debate, I led the audience in a debate about a battle between Spider-man and Batman, where we parsed their respective strengths and weaknesses, and argued our individual positions on the fight.
Both projects went over well with an enthusiastic audience, for whom I was very appreciative.
