Yesterday I got one for $25 for a two-hour presentation, which is 50% of the annual fee I pay to be in the organisation that gave it to me. I'm not upset by that by any means; I know it's not a well-funded association. I've attended countless free presentations and conferences myself, am casual friends with the professor who asked me to do yesterday's, and would have gladly done the presentation whether it was for free (which I thought it would be at first) or for a $250 honorarium. But $25 - what's the point? Why not just give me a nice thank-you card or a bottle of Red Label or some local souviner? It just seems kind of ridiculous to stuff what's basically a government dinner allowance in a white envelop and give it to a presenter. What's the smallest one you've ever had?
