So, what is a memory you have of Aether Salon? A speaker? A topic? Amusing chatter in the audience? An unexpected event?
Please share your thoughts and remembrances, funny, striking, or sad as a comment to this post.
I typically don't say much during salon because I am constantly switching screens, afraid I will crash and lose the transcript, so I didn't get to share on Sunday. The lag monster was in force as well that day.
I have been so impressed by the quality of our speakers. Seriously. I realize one can fake pretty much anything nowadays and look like an expert, but the Aether Salon speakers have been able to answer almost any question thrown at them which tells me they were knowledgeable about their subject. They've made insightful comments on the fly, based on a remark by someone in the audience. In other words, you all are smart people. Our speakers have wowed us with visuals, from slide shows, posters, models, and yes, even submarines.
Thank you to anyone who attended Salon. Thank for for stopping by and spending time with us. Many times speakers were made more brilliant by clever questions and comments by the audience. Thank you, too, to the faithful salonistas. Many of you have made an effort to join us on the third Sunday of the month, and I humbly thank you.
Please share a memory.
Thank you, Ceejay, for giving us the idea of a memory page.
