I gotta agree, Paul - the "general public" tends to judge performances by
whether they communicate something - many musicians seem to judge instead 
the degree of technical achievement that's represented. Since my thrust
tends to be more communicative rather than technical (even though when I
talk about my own software, I do tend to get technical), I try not to think
about how other musicians in the audience are reacting.

You know the old joke about how many guitar players it takes to screw in a

50: 1 to change the bulb, and 49 to stand around saying, "I could do that".
