"This is very interesting." -- L.S.
"It's not bull****." -- S.H.
I imagine L.S. is Lee Smolin.

I don't imagine S.H. is Stephen Hawking. Who is it?

My immediate guess was Bee Hossenfelder
She's posted around here some, as "Hossi"
and you probably bumped into her when visiting Perimeter.
phenomenologist, outspoken, funny, intolerant of fluff
what Garrett said is right, her comment WAS high praise

Speaking of "S.H." or Bee Hossenfelder, she has a nice report from the Loops conference (topic of this thread), which just ended.

Bee has pictures of SOME POSTERS ON THIS FORUM! There is a snapshot she took of Garrett and also, i think, of fh.
Also at least one other who has come here sometimes.

Garrett has given us a lot of firsthand reporting on the talks and people there

William Donnelly and Alejandro Satz, who both gave papers, have blogs and we may be getting news from them.

I should list places to check
