3 thoughts on “Moderate Moderating in Moderation”

  1. I followed the link and read the whole thing and, you know, I must be the only person on the planet who likes it when authors put their books up at panels.
    I like to see covers and I think the visual reinforcement helps drive sales. Contrary to what the link espouses, it is possible to display a book w/o obscuring a panelist’s face.

  2. One point I don’t think he covered (I skimmed it): Where do you look when you’re sitting on a panel and not speaking? Do you stare at the audience? (Unnerving.) Do you stare at the person talking at your side? (Strained neck; and excludes the audience.) Do you look down and fiddle with your nameplate? (Locking out the audience and your fellow speakers).
