At SMEE day 1 part5


Okay... it appears that people are cooperating to bring the day closr to on-schedule. The last major speaker cut his talk down from 1.5 hours to about 50 minutes... and no one asked questions.

Now, it is la mesa final, y one of the coordinators is negotiating the shaving of a few minutes from each presentation. However, given the speed of the prior panels of this morning, I don' think that this would be too much of a difficulty.

Three women presenters: a definite change of tone compared to yesterday. Interestingly, they are all dressed in various accoutrements of different shades of purple. This includes Rafys, who is up first, and may be the one who has traveled the furthest to get here... She's first, because it appears that the first speaker is now going to present (maybe she is from here?), So even mor time-saving to keep on schedule. Still, all of this could have been avoided if the logistics had been better...
