    Is anybody Tweet-capable? Might be nice to tweet him a thank-you! He's providing a valuable service. AFAIK he's the only tweeter there - I did a Google search and he was the only one who came up.

    This blog provides some background to yesterday's event from the pre-conference dinner perspective. I don't know if you have read it already.

    Also ME/CFS Newcastle posted on Facebook last night:

    Thanks for that - I'd seen Chris's blog post (he's always such good value) but I didn't even know Newcastle had a Facebook page so I've bookmarked that. :thumbsup:
