FWIW I did the recording in 2013. Yeah it is a slog that I swore away
from. So in that regard you are absolutely correct. That said, with a
minimal planning sticking a paper ought to do the job. Unless I'm
missing the bleeding obvious.
Perhaps not for Lightning Talks but for prepared talks almost certainly.
Let's say our Tuesday line up is
Moe, Larry and Curly.
Larry has no interest in being photographed. Unlike Lightning talks
which have everyone standing right in front of the stage or dais you can
(working with Larry tell him to avoid the front of the room) Tara has
volunteered to do this type thing. As soon as Moe is done we go dark.
Until Larry has completely gone of stage... or a close approximation of
Yes it is work. Tara's volunteered to do this I think she should be
taken up on it. (Hi Tara)
