117th AES Convention technical tours chair Larry the O has coordinated a series of behind-the-scenes visits with San Francisco’s high-tech and creative institutions. “Larry should be doubly commended for his work on this year’s tours,” remarked convention chair John Strawn. “In addition to his inspired site recommendations, he employed admirable diplomatic skills in convincing the management of these extremely private facilities to open their doors to AES Convention attendees. We are confident that these illuminating tours will be Convention high points for all participants,” Strawn concluded.
