I gave the keynote address at the Hewlett Model Congress in Long Island, NY on April 14, 2000. It was my first major speech, so I wanted to practice it first. I did a practice run at AU with NYRA-AU and my friends in the audience. One of my friends was from Long Island and had attended the previous year’s Model Congress. She said everyone there played “the dot game” during long boring speeches. So I slipped in a reference. 🙂
