Fuller had, however, already lent a hand that night to co-headliner Elaine Allison. When Allison's motivational speech was opened up for questions but met with awkward silence, Fuller graciously raised her hand. (Allison would later return the favor by allowing her cell phone to ring not once, but twice, during Fuller's time at the podium.) "You mentioned that your next book was partly about how to ask for a raise," she said from the back seats. "I'm sure that's something we'd all like to know more about." The irony of the question may have been lost on anyone in the room unaware of Fuller's history of ricocheting from one magazine company to another and winding up as one of the highest-paid editors in the industry. — Irin Carmon
