  1. Mark,

    You “should” find some poor soul who is willing and able to allow call-ins to the Realism seminar via Skype or some such technological wizardry. I might volunteer if I were there, but (luckily?) I’m not. 🙂

  2. trying to get skype to work as part of an event is one of the most stressful things i’ve ever experienced! never to be repeated.

  3. though we did manage to sustain a conversation between someone on american west coat, someone on american east coast and someone in canada – all relayed through a room in the UK. it was v cool.
