Thanks tetra,, this sounds very interesting. I have registered ( mikeq, it only takes a minute and location doesn't seem to be an issue). However I will be on a train at that time so not confident I will be able to join. Will keep my fingers crossed that Northern trains wifi is working!! Will try though. Hopefully there will be some notes/video afterwards.
Thanks a lot for this Tetra, this is a great idea, I hope someone posts the video on youtube because it'll be 4am my time. Things like this arent just helpful to the SCI community, its helpful for others who suffer from a myriad of pains. I might write to them and see if I can watch the seminar afterwards.
