on problems that are good to have but still annoying...

So, there's this annual conference on pop culture that is being held in Boston next year. Under the pretense I insist on forcing on myself that I'll actually be out of debt enough someday that I'll be able to afford to go to grad school and make something of my life, I allowed ludimagist and beststephi to convince me that I should submit to it to become a presenter. I submitted two abstracts, and amazingly both were accepted. Unfortunately, the rules of the conference state that I can only present on one topic, as they want to avoid scheduling conflicts.

So now I have to make a decision on which one to pursue.

Which of the following seems more interesting to people?

The "Masculinity" panel: Where I would discuss my life as a pro-wrestler and where wrestling fits in modern media culture (particularly comparing it to other combat oriented entertainment from boxing to action movies).


The "Electronic Communication & Culture" panel: Where I'd be discussing narcissism on the internet and what people have to gain from personal publication (particularly relating to my experiences in this blog, my old epinions postings, the 365 project).

I am so entirely conflicted here, I don't know where to begin. Opinions?
