I don't literally "LOL" very often, but I did this time. Be sure to read the title and caption ...

That's a shame, because from some of his other pix, him and his brother and the girlfriend(? of one of them?) look like fun people.

Pic timestamp: July 24, 2009 at 5.46pm EDT

From the Comic-Con 2009 schedule page:

3:00-4:00 Spotlight on Kevin J. Anderson * Kevin J. Anderson has written many novels in numerous universes (Star Wars, Dune, X-Files) as well as his own epics "The Saga of Seven Suns" and The Edge of the World, and he's also produced a recent crossover CD with some of the biggest names in progressive rock music. Kevin will be interviewed by Steven L. Sears, well-known scriptwriter (A-Team, Riptide, She Spies) and producer (Xena: Warrior Princess, Sheena Queen of the Jungle). Room 2

Is this where he was? Not quite sure the times work out.
I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

Hmmmm, well the time stamp is EDT and San Diego is PDT so subtract three hours from that. Or he just doesn't have an accurate time on his camera, I don't.

I think y'all are giving the guy too much credit for being able to set the time on his camera. After all, he's likely a KJA fan.

Whenever time-stamps are off by less than an hour, which appears to be the case here, I always assume the person didn't account for the latest Daylight Savings Time changes.
