The above video was shot by my wife at DragonCon this year, in part because this was our honeymoon. Aww, isn’t that cute? (Okay, there was a bit of CYA, after what happened to Dave Truesdale at WorldCon a few years ago.)
The video below is the official DragonCon video footage.
To be honest, this was a fun, fun panel to be on. The audience was great, the panelists were amazing. Everyone was sane. Who knew?
The description of the panel is as follows:

Time: Sat 10:00 pm Location: Embassy EF – Hyatt (Length: 1 Hour)
(Panelists: Jody Lynn Nye, Larry Niven, Declan Finn, Lisa Manifold. Moderator: Toni Weisskopf)
