DIALogue   was my first foray into public event programming and moderating, and took place in the 'Clock Room' at the Cooper Union — the room behind the large analog clock that faces onto Cooper Square, New York. Hence the series title. The idea was to bring together  speakers from different fields  of practice, whose work nevertheless struck me as having aspects in common. The goal of each evening was to spark dialogue among the speakers and with the audience; in an intimately scaled room that seated around 75 people, the conversation was always lively and often quite feisty.  Sadly, two  DIALogue  speakers have since passed away ( Glen Seator  and  Tony Arefin ), making the recordings of their presentations all the more poignant (transcripts available upon request).
