Re: [PLUG] Call for speakers: PLUG West July Lightning Talks

Hey everyone!

Would anyone be interested in a short PLUG West "lightning" talk on a

and neuropsychology experimentation?

If so, I hereby humbly offer the use of my dulcet voice for no more than
ten minutes to wax loquacious on this very subject.  :-)
