Bambi is SF?

Of course, Bambi is considered classical Singularity fiction, the first work to introduce the "forestpunk" scenario for posthuman, ah, thingies.

Pottery and knitting are genres?

They are bigger than genres, I guess, in the sense Barnes meant (I think he called novels, poetry, etc. "great genres" and made it clear he was referring to smaller-scale phenomena).

I can see the New Mexico-style black pottery as being a genre within pottery, but pottery and knitting both seem to me to be technologies...

As opposed to, say, the movies?

Is there any chance of a podcast/recording of these panels for those of us who couldn't make it to Wisconsin (but desperately wanted to)?
