    Do you remember how Bell responded to your question?

    I'm a rather timid soul in these situations. But I've been remembering back to some of those times when I really Stood Up.  I view those moments as gifts to myself now.

      -- maybe 50 of us? And it was after he'd spoken, and people were coming up to the podium to talk to him. So, I remember him sort of challenging me, and then, realizing where I was going, restating the question. After that... I don't really recall the answer. I think he spoke in generalities because

      a) it's a huge topic
      b) with a complicated answer and
      c) I don't think he was that interested in engaging because it would have taken a very long time to answer and there was a crowd of 15-20 still waiting to say hello

      I remember being vaguely disappointed, because his perspective was new to me, and I was very curious about his answer. I think I was a sophomore at the time.
