TC of the Future

Any Airport. Sometime in the not-so-distant future. A fellow begins to talk.

“I always thought big changes come with a heads-up. Be it words in a conversation, memo or email, an engaging speech or the like - nonetheless haunting and memorable. A situation where you feel a thrilling sensation of the things to come. Boy, how wrong I was.

I presume, an introduction is appropriate.
My name is Alan and I am the convenor of Working Group 3 of Technical Committee 124. Over the past six months, Working Group 3 has collaboratively prepared a working draft which I am to present at the Committee meeting overseas. Well, at least I thought I was – or am I?”

“My connecting flight is canceled, hence my debaucherous lecture. And while I could be sitting here, angry at the world, at the international airline which is supposed to carry me to the TC’s meeting, the weather, the circumstances and the waste of time – to be honest, I was all that – I am sitting here, reflecting on our work. And, well, feeling the thrilling sensation of recognition. But I get ahead of myself, let me start from the beginning.”
