Likewise! However, EA does get larger audiences in different
environments and possibly hiding under a different name (I suspect I'm
paraphrasing something similar you stated in your session).

Yeap, totally agree. Certainly, the students I spoke to at Concordia
were very informed and interested in what they were witnessing.
However, I didn't speak to too many of them! Everyone should be aware
that this isn't just a Concordia issue! In any institution that I've
performed in or visited, this has been an issue.

Hey, hang on a minute, I've just worked it out - it's me!
