    Hey, can you swing by SoCal on your way?

    Seems like all the good stuff happens out in the midwest.

    Start walking, bird. You wouldn't want to ride with a couple of rednecks with guns and a plastic Jesus on the dashboard anyway.

    Hey Bill if we talk him into putting dog after his name we could possible use him on the way. WE could sit in the truck and he could pick up the birds we get off the high wire.

    In case you missed the registration deadline, we've gotten permission from the college for people to register at the door, they just won't get food.

    You don't really want to swing by Southern Calif. UC Davis is in the northern part of the state where you can actually breath the air, not to mention a lot closer to where I live.

    Seriously, assuming that there will be a lot of printed material used in the presentation have you considered having some one collect it and make it available for a price. If that happens, put me on the list.

    doug, the plan is to videotape the presentations and put them up online for free (as we did for the organic conference last year...and will do again this year). at some point, a higher quality dvd might be available for a price, but i think i speak for everyone that we would all rather see the information get out there than sell it. it does cost me something to do this, but it is my pleasure.

    obviously, if any presenters object, i would never post or distribute (or even videotape) their presentations without permission. ...and i would make any accommodation to edit out anything sensitive (ie, i've turned the camera away from the screen when unpublished data was presented).

    as far as written material, it's pretty straightforward for powerpoint presentations to be put online if provided by the presenter. i'll be happy to host any relevant material provided by the presenter...but some things are copyrighted..ie, ramona will have a rather large binder with her research (articles, studies, etc) for people to look through if they are interested...but it is outside of our rights to republish this stuff.

    given what it takes to videotape (a single mini dv camera), and post online (google will host low quality video of any length for free), it seems to me a crime for anyone to charge for such things, unless the presenter gets a cut.

    deknow

    btw, the organic beekeeping conference presentations are all available on our website:

    Gas is very low now (comparatively)... IMO it would be worth the drive for anyone in a 600 mile radius. That would include Denver, Rapid City, Sioux City, Minneapolis, Chicago, Des Moines, the Quad cities, St. Louis, Little Rock, OKC, KC etc.
