One last TAM7 request…

Before I close the book on the Science-Based Medicine Conference and TAM7 for 2009, I have a quick request of you, my readers. Specifically, I’d really appreciate it if any of you who were at the SBM Conference and/or TAM7 and took pictures, to send me copies, preferably full resolution. As you might guess, at the SBM Conference I didn’t have time to take more than a handful of pictures myself, and obviously I couldn’t take pictures of the Anti-Anti-Vax Conference at TAM7 because, well, I was participating in it. The e-mail address is [email protected].

And thanks to everyone who reads my mental meanderings every day here and elsewhere…

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.

I regret that I didn’t take many pictures, though I took a lot of notes, and am posting summaries of the SBM conference presentations and TAM7 presentations at my blog. So far, I’ve posted summaries of the first four SBM presentations and hope to finish writing up the SBM conference tomorrow.

I have a bunch of pictures of the anti-anti-vax panel that I’ll send your way as soon as I get them transferred over to my computer (so probably sometime this weekend).

SD card was corrupt & we lost all but 2 pics. I’ve gotten a lot from facebook posts, but the resolution isn’t great so I had to beg for a couple of pics myself. Sorry!

I’m sending you 3 from SBM conference: let me know if there are any problems.
