Lloyd Carter and I did some panels at the past AWA reflecting on 25 years of the convention, and here are some of the photos we used to illustrate our talk:

Do we have video of that panel that Robert is part of? I'd love to see that.

I know Matt Murray and some other folks were shooting video at AWA 1996, but I don't think there's any footage of that panel, sorry.

Very cool to see the blasts from the past. Wish I could have been there!
