    With apologies as posting in haste so haven't read the whole thread, had just spotted this blog on Twitter and thought it includes a nice validation of the worth of using these opportunities on social media to educate the unwary.

    Thanks also
    I am so glad someone is taking a proactive approach.
    Utterly dismayed that the ME Charities response so far is to pretend this isn't happening.
    This surely will be by far the biggest non medical audience EC has had for her fabrications and distortions on this subject.

    FWIW I've got some Tweets written & saved via Buffer to go live just before EC's talk
    >using hashtags #TEDxBristol & #DaretoDisrupt which the organisers are suggesting.

    Does anybody know when EC's disruptive talk will be online? I remember it took around six months for Jen's TED Talk to be available.

    I know we agreed best not to click on it and put a video up here instead, just wanted to know how long it might take. :)

    It wouldn't surprise me if she's using a PR company, but she has the backing of the UK Science Media Centre, which proudly reported its success in orchestrating the anti-patients/advocates media campaign of 2011. I believe the campaign was intended to silence criticisms of the PACE trial and EC's SMILE trial.

    Not a TED talk but this is retired UK paediatrician and internationally renowned expert in ME, Dr. Nigel Speight, speaking at a conference in Brussels this year about his experience with children with ME / CFS and how they and their parents are treated.

    Worth noting that Nigel Speight is viewed by the current establishment as the 'disruptor' on the subject of children and young people with ME. The GMC placed restrictions on his licence to practice last year, subsequently lifted: http://forums.phoenixrising.me/inde...r-nigel-speight-gmc-drops-restrictions.47333/

    Also relevant to the subject of the TEDxBristol talk, in their statement about the GMC action against Nigel Speight, ( http://www.investinme.org/IIME-Newslet-1604-NS999.shtml ), IiME Research referenced two accounts, one written by the parent of a young son with ME ( http://ldifme.org/a-day-with-a-son-with-m-e/ ) one by the parent of a young woman with ME ( http://www.investinme.org/mestory1010.shtml )

    Common in children, i doubt it, sounds like she wants to increase the market so she can "help" more children and obfuscate the real disease. Gotta protect herself from reality somehow, there are too many people doing research on the actual disease mechanism and looking for medications to cure it. This must be stopped before it gets out of hand, it can only be psychosomatic and thats that
