Yeh, this temporal problem is probably one of the biggest
barriers to true global collaboration over the AG.
But, I would suggest that those of us who are hard-core
beer drinkers would not be averse to either
- Partying just a little later on the previous evening so
that their evening culminates with this symposium
- Getting up at 3 am to begin a day of partying (sounds kinda
fun to me!) - to quote the great philospher Kris Kristofferson
from "Sunday Morning Coming Down", "... the beer I had for
breakfast wasn't bad, so I had one more for dessert..."
And, that gives me thoughts of another category, which
maybe I'll offer to present "Great Country Music Beer
Drinking Songs!!" :) :) Now, that's where I can claim
some expertise!!! :) Since I constitute half the
organizing committee, I might be able to push that one
through :) :)
