List of plenary talks at Loops '07 conference
Quick post from Mexico:
Wow, I've had more good physics conversations with more people in the past two days than I have in the past ten years. I think my brain's going to explode.
My talk went well -- the E8 idea has attracted a lot of attention. Some quotes to amuse you:
"This is very interesting." -- L.S.
"It's not bull****." -- S.H.
That's actually high praise. ;)
The LQG community is very friendly -- such great people. There are a myriad of ideas branching out from this group in all directions, but all are working towards the same thing and connecting their ideas in fascinating ways. It is a very fertile community.
I think about half of PI is here -- it must be a fantastic place.
Must sleep now. Buenes Noches.

That's exactly the impression I have, even though based on my "very far far far away" geographical location.

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

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.

Yidun Wan's blog has more pictures from Morelia
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
*Alejandro Satz and William Donnelly have been doing other stuff and havent posted on blog much lately, but we might eventually see something so those links are included. Anybody think of someone I've missed?
