This year's ALA was very mixed bag. I hosted panel at ALA, and once again, tech dept disappointed me. On the paper there were 3 hosts, and only 1 mic was provided. We received 2nd one halfway through the panel. Not only that, but the room was lacking in cable to hook up the laptop to the speaker, in order to utilize the sound system for presentation. So, I had to lean down the mic, which means techie had to volume up the mic, which also meant I couldn't speak close to mic without busting people's eardrums. The tech shenanigan delayed my panel for good 10 minutes too, also another disappointing part. HOWEVER, the tech people that were there were vigilant and very helpful to the end. So I'd say it went fairly well.

Also Chaz and Lindsay, check your pm. I sent you a message.
