I'm giving a talk tomorrow. I do this relatively often. It doesn't bother me at this point in my life. The difference is at the end of this talk instead of polite but disinterested applause, I find out if the state of Michigan is going to give me $220,000. Kind of anxiety-producing, but in a fun sort of way. They're giving me 20 min to barf my pitch on them, so that's kind of like $11,000/minute.
