inviting questions and comments from the floor (I really don't like
"lecture" style presentations). Delivering a session like this requires a
certain amount of "on the feet" thinking, as well as a few stooges in he
audience to help keep it lively.

The min theme of the session, as I gave it, is captured in a blog post at
