Is this event recorded ?
NEW - We're simulcasting on YouTube Live! This is strictly opt-in, i.e. you should not feel pressure to be recorded or livestreamed.
Be mindful that Q&A during the livestream portion will also be captured on the livestream, & as an audience member your name may be -- but is generally not -- visible, so take any precautions you need to feel comfortable, like turning off your video or changing your screen name.
Announcements & chit-chat at 5:45pm; livestream / first talk starts at 6pm; non-livestreamed talk practice follows; event ends at 7:00pm.
