Jeneane’s got some points to share about invite-only, academic events centering on the limits of any round table. While I’m relieved she didn’t squewer moi, J should be heard (and usually is).
Short version:
“”Look, I don’t care what they say they”re up to, but the bottom line is this: You can set your room up in a circle; you can set your room in ten circles; but if you”re exclusive of who fills them, you”re limiting what you can accomplish. This sure as hell ain”t the UN. Now put that in your story and blog it.””
