I understand the logic of your first option, but my heart says I hope that that will not be the case. There are people suggesting that the Worldcon should merge somehow with one of the larger pop culture conventions, like Comicon, and I could see that as perhaps a potentially good survival tactic, but the idea of a completely fan-run, volunteer-run convention is something that, however inefficient, somehow mirrors what I think of as the best in fannish culture. (Believe me, I know all the worst of fannish culture, but I still prefer to dwell on the positives.)

Still, it may happen (although perhaps not immediately; perhaps within a few years), and if so, I'd like to think it's just an evolution. After all, death is only a stage of evolution, if viewed from the right angle.

I do like your second option, and I will therefore cheer for that one.

Happy Birthday, by the way!
