hope x notes

So far today I’m three for three on walking out of talks. Heavy on preaching-to-choir, light on explaining-something-we-are-doing. I know this is a standard hazard of conferences, but it’s especially frustrating where the choir is this thoroughly past needing the sermon and the problems under consideration are, say, the collapse of democracy into technologically determined fascism rather than, I dunno, having an easier time making web sites or whatever.
