You ever see a commercial stage effect a few years ago and now you look all over and cant find it? I got a 6 city rode tour coming up and I am looking for a stage effect I have seen before for speaking gigs. 4-6 spectators on stage holding large letter cards. Letters are facing the spectator and blank side is facing the audience. After some by play, the cards are turned around and spell a motivational etc word. Anything along those lines where specators are lined up and holding written words etc that can apply as a message or company logo. Any help much appreciated!

Doug Dyment has a nice take on Bruce's Eat at Joes, I believe it's called The Real Thing in his book Stimulacra and in Calculated Thoughts.

My own "The Real Thing" in Calculated Thoughts:

... offers a new and much more deceptive approach to a wonderfully corporate-friendly plot first proposed by Bruce Bernstein. A number of participants are invited on stage, and handed an equal number of document-sized envelopes. They then clearly, thoroughly, and openly mix the envelopes, and distribute them among themselves as they stand lined up on stage. The final envelope positions are truly — and visibly — random, as determined by the participants themselves. And yet, when the envelopes are opened (simultaneously, by the participants), each is found to contain a single large letter; these letters have unpredictably been arranged into the precise order necessary to spell out some event-appropriate, customized message for the audience. The entertainer does not touch the envelopes once they have been initially handed out, the participants do all the mixing, and no switches or gimmicked props are involved.
"Calculated Thoughts" is available at The Deceptionary :: Elegant, Literate, Contemporary Mentalism ... and More
