Thanks for posting the vid - it proved more interesting and thought-provoking than I (quite honestly) initially felt it would be… and especially the occasional glimpse into the minds of one or two authors whose works I’ve enjoyed (that thankfully brief foray into the icky subject of squishy bodily fluids notwithstanding). I’ve no idea who actually picked that panel but IMO it was a fine choice as they each had their own, intriguing way of looking at things and made a very good case – even when I didn’t necessarily agree with them on some of the finer points.
Kudos to Zachary for the ChoiceScript plug - eloquently stated! (And the check’s in the mail. ) Seriously though, it was good to see CS represented on the panel by a popular author, as it sometimes feels like our preferred branch of the hobby is an often-overlooked niche in IF, rather than the leading, increasingly-popular format it actually is.
Great job all round, guys: by this time next year, I expect we’ll also see Dan snapped up by a network to host a new talk show!
