So I was at a conference. And like at many conferences, there was a tech glitch. Good thing I was there.* I knew the speaker, so I asked if he wanted help. After about two minutes, I determined that he did not have the proper cables and thus could not use the equipment. I was saying this when two white guys came up and took stuff out of my hands and talked about their tech knowledge.
Ten minutes later, they conferred and came to the conclusion that the equipment could not be used. Ten minutes of my life. Gone forever. I refrained from saying, “I said that ten minutes ago.”
*I should note that I was in two other sessions where I fixed the glitches.
Go read Restructure! for more about this issue. By the way, if I saw Restructure! at a conference, I would just let her do her thing. Because I have a pretty good idea she’s smarter than I am.
