Now *this* is how panel moderators should be treated

New Yorker magazine cartoonist Liza Donnelly was live-sketching the Social Media Weekend New York at the Columbia School of Journalism a couple of days ago. She captured this image of Carla Zanoni moderating one of the panels. Zanoni is the executive emerging media editor and head of audience development at the Wall Street Journal.

Zanoni posted it to Facebook, writing:
The lovely talented Illustrator, Liza Donnelly from The New Yorker, just live drew me moderating a panel at ‪#‎SMWKND‬. 
Life now complete. Thank you!
Let it be a reminder to scribes, artists, and organizers to show some love and attention to your moderators for their hard work!
