AE 2010 Shopping in Tokyo Panel
And yes, I was nervous like crazy (my first panel talk ever)
I thought the panel went reasonably well, despite the technical issues at the onset. I really wish I had been feeling better (just getting over a concussion really played havoc with my ability to articulate as clearly as I’d like).
I had given the panel a run through the night before and went majorly overtime. At the actual panel I went under time which annoyed me because I really had so much more to say.
I would like to give another panel, except I think focus on a couple of specific points. I wanted to tell more stories and anecdotes (stripped those out as I went over time the night before). But I have no idea what people would be interested in learning.
So, whether you are passerby of this website, or someone who attended my panel, please let me know what you’d like to hear more about (reply to this post or send me a message). I would really appreciate that and then next year, if there’s interest, I’m happy to talk some more about my favourite subject.
And finally — thanks to everyone who attended my panel. I seriously did not expect to see so many people. Arigato gozaimasu.
Photos of the day below…
He just needed a costume.
Me — Harajuku outfit from BodyLine (back in the days when they had change rooms)
Dean snapped this one and I thought it a nice profile.
One of my pocket watches — you can’t see it, but the outside is decorated with a Fokker DRI triplane, which I felt appropriate.
First time I sat down I dipped my coat tails into the water. Thankfully they dried fast.
Audience at my panel. No one is sleeping, right?
I really wanted to share more but alas… next time I hope!
