That's Laverne McKinnon, she's the President of CAPE and did a great job putting this event together.
I dressed a bit better than normal. Daniel said he was going to wear some nice threads, but came in street attire. Daniel was great as a moderator. I've known Daniel for 10 years perhaps, and usually we'd ask him questions, but not today. He actually refused interviews with Chinese press since he didn't want to take away from the event.
This is when we first sat down. A bit nervous... a bit excited... Daniel had trouble getting his mic off the stand.
Half the crowd. It was nice that over 130 came through. Double their normal attendance. I see some smiles, which is really nice.
