Asking questions at the Sunday keynote

 

SCALE 12X, at the request of the speaker, is providing a second way of asking questions of the keynoter during the keynote.

Folks have the option of asking questions during Sunday's SCALE 12X keynote – Leslie Hawthorn's “Why Checking Your Privilege is Good For *You*” -- can be asked via IRC, if one does not wish to ask it publicly.

Those wishing to use the option of asking a question via IRC can sign on to #scale-chat on the OFTC network and ask on this moderated channel.
