San Antonio, TX August 14, 2001
This is a convention meeting of higher lever census people. They
were discussing how the 2000 census went and some of the results they found.
The panelists at the table are the chiefs of the census and were answering
lots of questions about ethnic diversity in various cities, political geography,
the effect of the new census on ploitical district lines, and new technology
for the next census. In the top left picture is Ron, the "head on
camera". He videoed the speaker. Off to his right out of the
frame was Bill on the cuts camera taking video of the folks asking the questions.
The top photo on the right is a dark picture of the control room. The
lady in the hat is a delegate to the conference, her elbow can also be seen
in the left picture. The guy in the black shirt Rob is running the audio
for our program. Jeff in the white shirt is a director from C-Span
directing the show. He chooses which camera is sent down the wire and
directs the camera man what to shoot. Down a long wire and outside
the building where the satelites are accessable, my truck is parked.
The portable electric generator is next to me in case I have a problem with
the generator in my truck. The program is beamed out the big dish to
a satellite and back to earth at C-Span in Washington, DC.
