Default Symposium 2003 Final Summation

All and all we got through 10 speakers and then the last speaker who was going to give a final talk, Maynard Olson. At that point everything shut down; all the lights. It must have been a combination of us and IT because by the last talk, for the summation, everything went down. The emergency power came on. We had no power left for anything but everyone had piled in for that talk and the whole lab was here so you could not even walk through the aisles and he was standing there, in the heat, with a flashlight, giving his talk.
