Fandom has been changing significantly and at the same time, much value is given to the concept of traditions in fandom. Most fannish communications have moved from paper to some form of electronic venue. We’ve embraced technology that links distant conventions together. Worldcons, including Worldcon76, are planned mostly through online meetings, multiple mailing lists and shared documents. Many conventions have adopted codes of conduct. We also continue old traditions; we award the Hugos, gather at physical conventions, attend panels, purchase books and art, we filk, game and costume. How do we place value on change and tradition at the same time?
