      After the microphone flop: 'I run a tech company.' Humorous high point of the evening.

    The Q&A format was great. Not enough mingle time.

      There was as much mingle time as you cared to consume post-presentation/Q&­A. The only limiting factor was when people left. I didn't get out of the place until almost 10.

      That general conviviality, along with its informality, is one of the reasons I agree with Christopher that the P&P is far more interesting and fun than the National Press Club.

      Sure hope so! Philly has an amazing concentration of talented individuals and unique communities. I'm not surprised that worthy events, ideas, and conversations happen everyday. Em, will you and Myles send me invite next time you plan on attending ONA? I'd love to join you!
