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 :) :)
