I'm somewhere in the middle of the road on this whole issue, actually.
Sometimes I'm okay, sometimes I just suck, and I do talk way too fast,
even for somebody from Jersey. Which is a trait of nervousness,
because I've never really been big on public speaking. It's something
that I've *learned* to do, but I've never been *comfortable* doing.

Interestingly, to your point, Shane Shellenbarger has been videotaping
just about every major (and some minor) convention appearance I've ever
made (the unlucky bastard, I'm guessing he lost a bar bet). That
should be quite a document, if only to use a series of dissolves to
trace the diminuation of the hairline....
