I wanted to attend this but something unexpected came up & I missed it.

How did it go?

Anyone who attended care to share?

I attended it. I thought that they said they were going to make the recording available.

They really only talked about the process they have undertaken for the $5 note so far. That was bulk of the conversation. I thought it was useful for someone who is interested at a very general level.

There were some interesting interactive exercises that they had.

I don't think you missed much though as most of what was discussed is available in their documented media.

Wonder what paper money would say if it could talk?

I thought it was interesting and wonderful of them to extend the invitation but I got the feeling they were somehow favouring Robertine Barry but that may have been for demonstration purposes.
