Here are some patterns to post-speech question and answer sessions that really ought to be avoided.
Let me talk about my stuff for 3 minutes and then ask you a weak and marginally related question.
When's the first time you used [x]?
I love you! I just really really love you! Can I give you a hug?No.
Let me tell you a horror story related to a thing I did.
In fact, it seems like the vast majority of questions asked at these times are a waste of time to everyone but the asker. Thank you to those who organize sessions with questions via Twitter or "at the pool" only.
