Just watched it. Very much worth watching (or listening - the video does provide some visuals, author photos and the like). A nice balance between academic & fannish viewpoints. Charles Ardai does an excellent job moderating the panel. The one annoying problem is spotty miking and a bad acoustic - especially with the symposium organizer at the beginning, he uses a handheld mike but is incapable of speaking without gesticulating. Better with the table mikes for the panel, but you do have to strain to catch everything, particularly when author names and story titles are being thrown about. I'll try the next installment with headphones.
I agree. I hadn't thought about the headphones, so I'll give that a try.
