My questions for event organizers — Unstoppable Robot Ninja
"In recent years, I’ve been lucky enough to do a lot of speaking. As a result, I’ve drafted a set of questions I send to organizers, which help me figure out which events I’m able to participate in. It’s a great way of figuring out whether or not I’ll be a good fit for the lineup—and, like the start of any other client engagement, they help me understand how well the organizers and I might work together."

As a result, I'm always interested in alternatives to standard CAPTCHA techniques."
