Re: First for a Reg lecture...

Every time something like this is said, it devalues the lecturer in question. They have a good contribution to make, can communicate well and are very smart; those are the criteria.

Monitoring (and praise) of any other attributes will always start to imply (or in the worst case, create) a culture where people have been picked for said other attributes, because if there aren't enough good people who just happen to have those attributes, then less good people will be picked just because of those attributes.
