There's a policy I've adopted for when I'm moderating, of prioritizing questions from people who haven't spoken yet. If you've already had a chance to speak, you don't get another until every other hand up belongs to someone else who's already spoken. It's far from perfect, but it goes a long long way towards minimizing the conversation-monopolizing abilities of certain audience members.

Good moderating can really make all the difference in these things. I've tried really hard to copy behaviors from good moderators--the tactic I just mentioned, for instance, and the firm-but-gentle "that thing you are trying to talk about, that's an interesting topic, but it's not the topic we're here to discuss." I'm a little surprised more people don't do these things.

I have this about me, too, I know (also manifests online as multiple-post syndrome). I know where it comes from: bubbling anxiety that I'll never get a word in edgewise, as learned from my mother, who is both an anxious "flooder" and an interrupter herself.

Does Wiscon do any moderator training? For that matter, is it possible to discuss respectful participation in the user manu...er, program book?

Jed

Lisa: There's a tips-for-moderator document linked from the programming page. Unfortunately, the main version of that is in PDF, and the HTML version is badly formatted.

Here's my unofficial reformatted version; once everyone's had a chance to rest up from the con, I'll talk with the WisCon folks about replacing their HTML version with mine. (We talked some about it before the con, but the relevant people were, of course, swamped, so we left it on hold.)

All of these are closely based on the Minicon moderator tip sheet.
