It was fun to see you running around the AHS grounds and I love my sticker, my daughter put it on her door!
Good work and all your suggestions for next years AHS are spot on. FOOD!!

Deb:

A pleasure! Food will be critical, as I can't drive to next year's symposium (I mostly ate out of my cooler this year).

I completely agree with your comment about session length and intersession down time. Some of the most fascinating ideas were popping around during the breaks. What blew me away was how approachable everyone was and how people were genuinely interested in new knowledge. I enjoyed meeting you and hope to see you at a future event (I was the idiot who asked if your book was available as an ebook -- blame the Nook I picked up the day before).
Cheers

It was a pleasure to meet you!  And "Is the ebook available" isn't a dumb question at all, even if the answer right now is still "No."

There was definitely a charge in the air, and I feel proud to have been a part of it.

Thanks, JS. "change in the air, and feel proud to be a part of it" pretty well sums it up. Cool study at RPI showing how as little as 10% of a population of "true believers" can influence the majority: “Social consensus through the influence of committed minorities.”
Which brings me to one of my favourite presentations: Mat Lalonde's rant about how faulty science can sink our "movement". Heed his message and we *will* prevail.

p.s. went "walkabout" with my brother and my dog for a couple weeks in the British Columbia backcountry right after the symposium -- what an august August! I am still wired...
p.p.s If you are ever up Vancouver way, give me a call.

Charlie:

I agree that we shouldn't knowingly propagate bad science...but faulty science didn't stop Ancel Keys and the McGovern Committee from killing millions of people by propagating and popularizing clear scientific fraud.  It's more important to have a simple, understandable message than one that's correct in every single particular -- and it's also important to remember that peer-reviewed science is often flat wrong, so citing it is no guarantee of scientific rigor.

The question is: how much simplification can the message stand before it becomes misleading, or worse than what we're trying to replace?  There is no pat answer, and we'll have to figure it out as we go.
